celebrating december III

So happy to be celebrating December again this year!  I’ve even finished my priority Christmas knitting – the rest is gravy.  We’ve been tobogganing already, and we’ve drank steamy mugfuls of hot chocolate with marshmallows.  Is it possible that I have celebrating December down to an art?  Not quite.  I was too late on making reservations for Christmas Victorian Tea at Eldon House.  So it’s out, but there’s nothing stopping us from visiting Eldon House this month to soak up the decorated interior and popping over to Covent Garden Market for tea at the Tea Haus, and if we hit downtown on a Sunday, we can swing by Museum London and make art in the studio overlooking the Thames too.  A little tweaking, and it’s all good again.

Last week we headed into the woods, picked up our Christmas tree, sat around the fire eating chili and drinking hot apple cider with best friends, played in the hay maze, said hello to the goats, and roasted marshmallows for the third year in a row.

Last night we crossed off a dramatic reading of A Christmas Carol at Centennial Hall in support of the Unity Project.  AND afterwards we zipped over to City Hall to ride the elevator up to the 12th floor promenade deck so that we could gaze at the lights flooding Victoria Park.   Absolutely splendid and breath-taking.  It’s been added to the tradition list without a second thought.  Next up?  Baking.   Snowballs.

    I love your traditions, too, Nadine…and am so thrilled that you’ve continued on at the woods with us. It’s my most favourite day of the whole year. December is the best month of the year, by far, in my opinion. It just has that something, you know? As for visiting Jen…I’m all over it. Let’s go.
