Christmas Is in the Air

I spent the day yesterday with my mom and my sister as we baked and confected up a storm. I made my Nanaimo bars and helped my sister with the candy cane cookies (I can never eat enough of those!). My mom made fudge, sugar cookies, and date bars. And the kids all pitched in to make shortbread. Now I feel like the season has actually begun!

Now I can go shopping and weather the zombie shoppers around me. Now I can turn my Pandora to a holiday station. Now I can go buy a tree—my first real one since I was a little girl! Now I can break out the lights and the candles and the decorative knickknacks. Granted, I have to keep the decorations to an elegant minimum because I live in a shoebox, but that doesn’t matter when it comes to Christmas. Oh! We also mustn’t forget the traditional rum and eggnog—it’s the only way I ever drink rum. Because rum is disgusting.

Everything has suddenly cooled off, too, which sets the mood for the season. Yay! I’m so excited!

Tomorrow is St. Nicholas Day, so don’t forget to leave your shoes by your door tonight. All the good little boys and girls will get candy and treats; all the bad little boys and girls will be dragged to hell. Which one are you?
