Countdown to Christmas - Time to Celebrate ...

Although Christmas Day is still weeks away,
we are already being bombarded with Christmas films on telly,
seasonal food in the shops & over the last few days,
the weather has certainly turned more wintry.

Christmas Day will be here before we are ready.

Below is a project from a few years ago. I made a set of nine inchies,
the initial letter on each inchie spelling out the word

Join me each week for a focus on treasured memories on a countdown to Christmas.

Take a moment or two to pause & reflect on what Christmas means to you.

This time of year is full of so many memories from Christmas Past
as well as the excitement of making new memories to be treasured in years to come.

Let's begin with C for ...

Chestnuts roasting over a coal fire

Carollers singing familiar songs

Candles burning brightly

Celebrating with family & friends

Clementines studded with cloves

Chocolates – a treat for all

Crackers to make the meal go with a bang

Cinnamon Chai latte to comfort & warm

Crystallised fruits, a cherished memory from Christmas Past
