Merry holidays

What is it about the holidays? It smells different, there is magic in the air, we are at our best. Is it the scent of the candles, food, pine trees or presents? Are we really celebrating the birth of Jesus? For everyone there will be a different answer I bet. For me it’s all about the joy that the holiday brings, the snow flakes on the trees, the xmas carols and the food that comes along with it and recently a new realization,” the happiness of my family”. I have also come to realize that no matter how bad of a day we have, there is always a sense of peace and emotional nourishment at the end of it when we have a warm cup of tea accompanied by a delicious meal. Food is certainly food to the soul. On xmas eve I had my in-laws over for dinner since it was our son’s first xmas. I made roasted duck, pot stickers and Caribbean style noodles and cupcakes for desert. Can you imagine an environment with some good food, family, healthy conversation? I couldn’t ask for any other way to spend a holiday evening. Happy holidays to everyone out there. Thanks for reading!
