I love Christmastime–I think it is my favorite time of year–with lots of baking and cooking, presents to make/buy/wrap, thinking of loved ones, visiting, decorating, staying warm by a fire, taking cold walks in the woods, delicious foods to eat, no school . . . the list goes on. It is very busy, but so fun, especially with children. This special time comes to a close, for us, at the end of the “twelve days of Christmas”, or January 5. Then, we will take down the decorations, lights, and tree, and Christmas will be over. So, we only have a few days left, and I want to remember the nice Christmas we have had this year.
