Ottawa finally woke up to a snow-covered wonderland yesterday after many worried that we would have a green Christmas for the first time in several years. Luckily, Mother Nature pulled through and the white stuff is adding some sparkle to the holidays.
I’m sure you know how it is with the holidays — you make all these plans, and there’s never enough time. I had a list of recipes and treats to try, outings to do and decorating plans, but inevitably the majority falls to the wayside as I spend time with family and friends instead of running around…but, really, that’s ok!!
Although everything is celebrated in a pretty secular way in my house, we do like to have some hybrid Christmas/Hanukkah traditions…it makes for a pretty tasty holiday!!
With all the hustle and bustle I will post the recipes later, but most of these treats are just simple muchies…enjoy!
So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, have a great Festivus (for the rest of us), and keep warm in this last week of December!
And, if I may be so bold as to suggest some holiday music, this playlist http://8tracks.com/kshap/winter-warmth is pretty versatile. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!!
