My Holiday Essentials!

I love the holidays because it’s not only the time of year when everything is gingerbread flavored, or there’s gorgeous lit trees everywhere, but because of the spirit of the season: there’s something about the holiday season that’s full of peace, hope, warmth, and joy, and that’s what I look forward to at the end of every year! This year I’m celebrating getting into the spirit of the season with Glade® and their new Limited Edition Winter Collection and my holiday essentials:

My Holiday Essentials!
STEP 1: ADDING THE “SCENT” OF THE SEASON TO YOUR HOME

I always start with scents for the holiday season –there’s something about these that takes me back to childhood holidays, baking cookies with mom, etc. I’ve chosen a selection of scents from the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection to match the spirit of the season, including SHARE THE SPIRIT™, CHRISH THE PRESENT™ and BE AT PEACE™. I love the names of these candles as they capture what I’m looking to share with my loved ones this year.

STEP 2: KEEP THE TRADITION ALIVE

Traditions are very, very important to me. I try my best to keep whatever tradition my family has going year after year and one of those is our nutcracker collection. We’ve collected quite a few throughout the years and they’re always proudly displayed wherever we can find a spare spot! If you don’t have any traditions yet, start one! Start a collection of crystal snowmen or listening to vintage holiday albums every night after dinner: a tradition only needs to be started!

STEP 3: SHARE A SWEET, SHARE A STORY

I always say that life is best enjoyed not in moderation and I certainly apply that to my holiday sweets! I always have a plate of yummy cookies on hand because it’s just something simple to share with a family member after dinner or offer to whomever stops by during the holidays. Share a cookie and a story and cherish these simple holiday moments!

STEP 4: ENJOY HOLIDAY MUSICTHE OLD FASHIONED WAY

Nothing brings peace and the spirit of the season more than popping in a vintage holiday record!
One of my favorite things to do on a really snowy night is to light a candle or two, sit back with a book, and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the season.

I found my Glade® Limited Edition Jar Candles at Kroger in the holiday section, right where the candles are!

Which scent from the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection will you be enjoying this holiday season? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading,

    I love having a Christmassy smell in the house this time of year, nothing beats it! Keeping up Christmas traditions is always a big one for us too, I love making our own year on year!

      I agree! Making new traditions is just important as keeping old ones alive!
