Holly Berries: Winter Christmas Floral
Tuesday, December 20, 2011
After this weekend things finally began to feel like Christmas. And I can't believe it is only a couple of days! (Yay!) This year has been such a new & different experience for me. I have spent every one of my Christmas's with my parents. My Mother has a real knack for ringing in the Christmas spirit. The tree comes up right after Thanksgiving & is always lit. We spend time together shopping, watching Christmas movies & putting together neighbor gifts. We spend every Sunday night celebrating advent & eating lot of treats. It's exactly what Christmas is to me.
This year is my first year away from my parents. It has been hard to try & reign in on that Christmassy feeling. I decorated the house right after Thanksgiving, watched a lot of Christmas movies & spent time on preparing gifts for family & friends. But it still didn't feel like the same old Christmas I was used to. I'm sure as time goes by, I will figure out new traditions that will help make my season feel like Christmas.
How do you create the Christmas feeling in your home? I sure could use some tips!
