Scents and Excitements.....

 The scent of Christmas is all around.   I love how the smell of a Balsam Fir, permeates our entire home..

Honestly....I think I'm addicted to this sweet fragrance!  The smell of Fir trees....takes me to a magical Christmas experience.   

I can just picture myself being surrounded by snow....lots of snow, massive mountain peaks, sleigh rides, lights dangling from all kinds of evergreen trees, and.... the smell of hot cocoa!

Envy??  I try not to envy....but for those of you who live up North...near the mountains...I kinda envy the ambience that surrounds you, each Christmas season.

I also enjoy the smell of pies baking (especially mincemeat)...mulled cider, sugar cookies, and cranberries with oranges, and cinnamon sticks simmering.

Do any of you associate certain fragrances with this festive time of year? 

How about certain sounds?  Sounds like BELLS.   The bells will be ringing on every street I hear!  Jingle bells, church bells, and choirs singing....fires crackling, and people laughing all around.

Oh the sights, the sounds and the SMELLS of Christmas....They truly push my excitement button....

Still on my list today....

1.  Make Fudge
2.  Wrap a couple of gifts
3.  Get my games together
4.  Visit my dad..

See ya later...

I love the scent of cinnamon at Christmas and any Christmas music...even in the stores. Enjoy your holiday week! Merry Christmas!

I love all the smells and sounds and well, everything that is associated with Christmas! One of my favorite scents is one from my childhood. We always cut a cedar tree on the farm for our Christmas tree. That scent brings back lots of memories. I love Christmas music and never tire of hearing it. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Hey I am really big on good smells. I nearly always have a couple of Yankee candles burning, and after hearing you talk about Balsam I'm diggin that one out. We have a fake tree :(
I like your festive header. Sure would like to sample some of that fudge.

Cinnamon, peppermint and Balsam Fir perfect scents of the season! Christmas is the best and here's wishing you and your family the best of Christmas. Merry Christmas, Shug!

Hi, I love the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas also. The one thing I did NOT like about living in Texas was this time of year when I missed the cold temps and the snow. Speaking of snow, I don't think we are going to get any this year --at least for Christmas. We are forecast to get RAIN...Santa will have to visit in his boat this year!!!!!! ha

Merry Christmas.
