Christmas time is here again...almost.

As it's nearing December and stores are already starting to play Christmas tunes, have their display windows decked out festively, and are already overrun with crazy shoppers, I am slowly starting to get in the holiday mood.

While perusing Pinterest earlier, I found a few Christmasy things that made me long for gently falling snow on a calm, chilly night, bundled up with boots and scarves and mitts, walking through a winter wonderland; sitting around the fire place at my cousin's house with all the extended family, playing Trivial Pursuit or singing a few carols. All the things that remind me of Christmases gone by, all things I love.

What puts you in the Christmas spirit?


  1. I think the thing that puts me in the mood for Christmas is the frosty weather and seeing NOVEMBER on my calendar---I love Christmas!!!

    Can't wait until December 1---then I start the Christmas music and serious baking and decorating!!!

  2. I wait until December 1st to begin playing the Christmas music too, Kathleen. And I'm so looking forward to baking delicious cookies soon! I'm going out this weekend to shop for decorations for my new apartment - very excited!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)
