    I had a really nice Christmas.

    I get so stressed out before it, but when it happens it's just magical. The excitement, the build up its so much fun. This year I made 8 Christmas puddings. I gave most of them away. Then I made gingerbread and mince pies. I love setting the table with my Holly leaf table...

    Reflecting back on my life.

    . and every Christmas Eve and Morning, I can honestly say that I once again have faith in this holiday. The commercialism is excessive in this day and age. How much in sales, seems to be the focus for most companies and headline news, sad really. But, its up to each and every one...

    Snow

    I love to look at the snow. In the morning when it is fresh and sparkling it looks like there is a white blanket over the world, with glitter sprinkled all over it, especially when there is no traffic, and the sound is peacefull. You know the bears are sleeping, and the rabbits...

    Any kind of tips will do. I can trusted my sources on the internet most of the time, but I'd also love to hear what the people of EP have to offer. Ranging from hair, body, nail care, or any other helpful recommendations. Thank you:)

    Christmas is my favorite holiday to celebrate

    with my family, relatives, Christian friends, other friends, and co-workers. I always enjoyed Christmas when I was a child. I never forget the reason for the season; it was Christ and not the gifts I received and gave to others.
