December is my favorite month of the year. It’s already beginning to look and smell a lot like Christmas. We have snow, I got the cinnamon and ginger out, I got the apples on the table and I start making the mulled wine. I love December and I love Christmas.
We put the decorations, we get a tree, we listen to Christmas music, we write Christmas cards and we make the menu for the Christmas dinner. You think is too early but time in December passes so fast.
Is family and food time. During the whole month of December I am testing some of the new dishes for the Christmas dinner to check how much time will take and how will look and taste.
December is also time to make decorations with my little boy. Even now, as I write on a piece of paper this post, my little one is writing next to me something on another piece of paper.
We have always oranges in the house, but in December we have even more. Oranges, apples, cinnamon and ginger are a must in December. I start drinking my coffee with cinnamon in it. Yummy!
In December I start knitting more than usually. I am a big fan of handmade things. So I recycle old shirts, jewels, bottles, etc. and make new ones. I start blogging about my crafting and knitting projects last month because I discovered I love blogging. You can find my projects here: Loving to purl.
Christmas for me is not about spending money, is about spending time with your family. We do decorations, we play, we learn Christmas songs and poems, we read, we listen to music, etc. Even more than usually. We keep the Christmas traditions and also make new ones every year.
With the snow coming down, we put our gloves and take our sleigh, and we go out to have fun.
So I am happy December is here. That means Christmas is around the corner.
