Hi everyone, this is my first trip in 2016 and…
It’s a week to Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year. What does Christmas remind you of? Doesn’t it give us a warm, fuzzy feeling whenever we think about Christmas? As a child, Christmas was very special to me. My dad would always bring a log cake home for me with a Santa Claus figurine on it. He would also take us all to town too look at the Christmas light up. These are all very precious memories to me. I remember taking the figurines off the cake and washing them, keeping them as souvenirs and display them next to my bed. I loved cakes especially pretty ones and that love had never ceased. I still adore looking at beautiful cake creations and we are so fortunate these days as the cakes are getting bigger and fancier than they were when I was a kid!!!
Streets all beautifully lighted with decorations of the season, malls playing Christmas carols, Christmas has a special way of putting everyone in a jolly mood and fills the air with romance. Traditional Christmas fare like turkey, ham and a succulent roast are mandatory in my house parties. Sipping egg nog and looking at the Christmas tree all decorated makes life so complete.
I love the ambience of a cosy house party filled with spice candles releasing scents of cinnamon, anise, vanilla and pine. I cannot imagine Christmas without all the wonderful scents. The smell of pine from the Christmas tree, a pomander with the scent of orange infused with cloves, and the fragrance of fruity spice in mulled wine are all so familiar and is as much of a Christmas tradition as hanging up a stocking on Christmas Eve and music playing The Christmas Song.
“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Helps to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight”
This year however, I will be spending Christmas in Tokyo dressed up in my perfect little Christmas dress. Do stay tuned for The Luminous One Goes To Tokyo coming to you very soon!!! Have a fantastic festive season everyone!!! Muacks and love you all!!! xoxo
