Christmas cookies, chocolate dipped brandy soaked figs and St. Lucia Rolls
Mulled wine with local oranges and christmas spices
Friends candles small sweet gifts
late night tea side talks
There are so many rich comforting moments to be had at this season
I remember in Norway there was a word kose sig (am completely misspelling it) but the idea behind the word was to 'cosy yourself' and that is just what I love about this time of year.
