“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night – and God bless us, everyone!” When we were kids we watched the George C Scott version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol every year on a rickety scratched up old Beta tape, taped off the TV, with brutal 80s commercials and all! We finally upgraded in the new millenium with a VHS version. I love Christmas, always have – I think that deep love for the holidays was instilled by my mom at a very early age. Later on we fell in love with White Christmas – oh, the drama, the romance, the costumes! And of course the music… and It’s A Wonderful Life always gets me. Tears, I tell ya. Beautiful tears – I love Jimmy Stewart.
What does Christmas mean to you? To me, it means spending time with my nearest and dearest, baking, cooking and eating, laughing, drinking and snacking, gifting and playing in the snow and gazing at twinkly lights on our Charlie Brown Christmas tree. And Christmas has been re-born for me since Teddy came into my life – watching him be dazzled and delighted by Christmas cuteness is the most amazing thing. We got him a super cute wooden play kitchen – I can’t wait to play with it! Haha.
Happy Holidays to all my cake pals, blog readers, lovely cake fans and passer-by! Hope you get to do something wintry, cozy and fun with those you love.
