It’s official — my favourite time of the year has started with the lighting of the Christmas tree! I am a bit of a sucker for all of the traditions and this year, I agreed to host my entire family. Not only are all 22 of them coming for Christmas dinner, they are staying the night.
The reality of this endeavour is just starting to set in as I make the list of all the things I need to pull this event off . . . and the costs keep going up!
Of course, I want to do it right the first time so I am setting the bar high and for me, that includes bringing in a lot of fresh boughs, berries and a real Christmas tree.
