Remember stringing popcorn and cranberries?  Baking Christmas cookies?  Doing holiday crafts?  Who has time for those things anymore?  We do!!  What’s the point of a holiday season without a sense of creativity and wonder?  Over the years, I’ve made nosegays, pomanders and pot pourri.  I’ve gathered pine boughs and cones for wreaths, and dipped beeswax candles.  I’ve baked goose and shortbread and persimmon pudding, mulled hot cider and wine.  Maybe this year, I’ll try my hand at homemade eggnog!  Whatever your holiday tradition, bring back that sense of joy and magic through some form of creative artistry.  If you have young children, let them guide you!
