The Best Things About the Holidays


  1. Eating sugar cookie dough when your mum isn't looking
  2. Tromping through the woods to get a real tree, which will inevitably look rather Charlie Brown-ish once we get it home
  3. The big, juicy orange in the toe of your stocking
  4. Camping out on the living room floor with the cousins
  5. Sledding at the golf course
  6. Freshly extinguished candles
  7. Making lefse with the ladies of the family
