baby won't you go underneath the mistletoe.

December 19, 2010

Now that I've really been able to spend my time focusing on the holidays, (although to be honest, the rain is driving me nuts, where is my white Christmas?)
Rather than being busy with schoolwork or finals, I've had the time to spend my time with family and friends who I love, and I've realized my favorite things about the Christmas season are limitless.
Greeting cards, packages and peppermint sticks, spending my evenings creating the annual Christensen Family Year Book (speaking of which mother and father, I need your updates quick!)
I love the falling snow and all the twinkle lights, although, consider me plain, but I like the clear lights instead of the colored ones most.
I love Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in White Christmas.
I love Michael Buble's Christmas album, and decided that John Mayer really needs to make one too.
But what topped the list this year as my most favorite thing about the holiday season, is being able to say "Merry Christmas" to everyone I meet. Forget "See you later," or "Nice to meet you," -- It's the one time of the year that I get to wish the people on the phone, the post office and the grocery store a "Merry, Merry Christmas," and I think that's what makes me most happy.

I should really save this next part for another blog, but I can't help it, I like to talk too much.

So I tried making toffee over Thanksgiving break, and my sister almost threw it up. It was a disaster. Anyway, I had told my grandma about this, and so she referred me to her toffee recipe this weekend.
2 stick of butter
1 cup of sugar
5 cent candy bars and 25 cent almonds.

It's horribly cheesy to say, but seeing 5 cent candy bars and 25 cent almonds made my heart melt. And hey, at least my toffee actually turned out this time!

Yum, toffee!
And my cousin is over in Egypt from England for Christmas, I'm Muslim, so we don't celebrate Christmas and I am at such a loss, I want her to have a proper Christmas!
