Some moments from the little Christmas/Yule/Chanukah tree at my apartment! I’ve always valued the holidays, and I wanted to be extra festive this year. Goodness knows we all need a bit of extra sparkle this year! I’ve been baking up a storm, I made mini mock mince pies and ginger cake. I made little bags of goodies and got to play Christmas Fairy delivering them to friends and family!
I have a diverse mix of ornaments going back over 30 years. Many of them I made in preschool! Of course, I’ve also collected a bunch of cute and glittery ornaments over the years that usually hang over my bed. In addition to hanging them on the tree, I made a little “underwater” Christmas village, complete with fish swimming above the houses. And to top it all off, I have a regal holiday frog! I think holiday lights are a beautiful sign of togetherness, and it makes me happy to see so many people putting out decorations this year. Let’s hope we have a safer and simpler holiday next year!
