51 Days Til Christmas

November 3rd, 2011 at 08:13 pm

I've never been into Halloween that much which serves me well since I don't have to spend too much on costumes, parties, decorations and stuff. But I must admit that I love everything about Christmas. I believe that it really is the most wonderful time of the year - season of giving and sharing. The downside is that it costs money to keep Christmas festive.

I'm thinking of making Christmas cookies and other goodies to give out to friends, which hopefully I can finally do since I'm not that much of a baker. No new Christmas decorations this year as well as I will just be reusing everything.

What I don't want though is to have all the Christmas spirit and still be haunted by the expenses left until the year after.

    I made two different types of bread last year that were a hit as a gift. Beer Bread was one of them. It's on my blog if you do a search.

    Cookies are a great idea, too. I think everyone loves something homemade.

    Peppermint bark is easy to make! We do it every Christmas morning, my oldest daughter and I. We use top of the line ingredients, though this year I'm considering making it as gifts and will probably use store brand items. I might invest in moulds this year. Not too costly or time consuming and wonderful to eat! Maybe an idea for you?

    I love Christmas, too, and try to start very early with my shopping and preparations, because it leads to some insurance of less stress and more enjoyment of the season. It's the most wonderful time of the year... if you let it be!
