The Scents Of Christmas
I ventured amongst the masses yesterday, taking myself off to the thronging Christmas shopping mart, I must confess, it's not my cup of tea.
I much prefer the kind of shops that are a 'hole in the wall' kind of place, brimming with antiques and time-worn utilitarian pieces, their finishes worn with years of use and enjoyment.
And so before long, I found myself rambling around my favorite little shop, decorated to the hilt with fresh Cedar boughs, Magnolia branches, and Rose hip berries, mingled together with gingerbread cookie ornaments and hot mulled cider ; the scents intoxicatingly delicious.
This is the magic of Christmas.
