Through the years, we have accumulated several of our favorite games in Christmas editions. Something about that makes them even more fun! Our favorites are Rudolph Monopoly, Scrabble Christmas Edition, and A Christmas Story Yahtzee. We have had those games for quite awhile. And we enjoy them every single year. New this year is The Grinch Christmas Bingo. I found it on Zulily, and we love it.
We usually play in the late afternoon, gathered at the kitchen table. It is just getting dark, the Christmas lights are glowing, and we are together. It is an easy way to slow down and spend time together. We usually have cocoa and cookies to make it even more special. Years from now, I imagine my children saying to each other, "Remember when Mom played Christmas games with us in the afternoon, and made cocoa too?" And that would be good. : )
We burned our third candle from our Twelve Days of Christmas book today, and it was one of my favorites.
Home for the Holidays smells like Christmas.
It smells of pine, cinnamon and spice.
I have burned this scent in my Christmas home for years.
As soon as we light it, we know Christmas has arrived.
Thank you for visiting my little space today.
