This Christmas season has borne a different signature to me and others around me it seems. It feels to have snuck up without the usual holiday nostalgia and excitement as in past years; like a house guest arriving well earlier than planned. After feeding myself on a constant diet of Christmas Carols and a bit of sparkly gift wrapping, I finally feel I’ve synced up but with reduced fanfare, decorations and time for reflection.
Glogg (ScandinavianMulled Wine) Mix Kit. The dry ingredients for Glogg can be packaged up in a basket with a bottle of wine and an orange for a beautiful, seasonal gift.
My family has always had a very specific Christmas morning food and gift opening protocol. We begin the morning with coffee and coffee cake while stockings are opened (which is done by each gift recipient opening a package while other’s watch). When this is completely done a more hearty breakfast is prepared before moving along to the under-the-tree gifts.
