Christmas lights, everywhere. Christmas light bokeh.
Stockings, handmade by my grandmother as we three were born. I have to learn how to knit so I can make them for our future children.
The growing nutcracker collection in the window, arranged by size.
Wrapping presents. Using real ribbon instead of that crappy curling kind. Even if it’s a bit indulgent.
Making shortbread with Dad. Eating shortbread.
The advent calendar my mom made when we were kids, still kickin’.
Big, fat Christmas trees. The icicles we hang once the tree’s decorated. Towering piles of presents.
Starting my own Christmas collections and traditions.
