Growing up, I loved the Christmas season and not just because of the presents I expected to receive, either. I thought the whole season was magical, primarily because of the charming way my mother transformed our home during that time of year. All around the house there were little vignettes of Christmas and when the early nights fell, candles everywhere were lit. It was enchanting!
My mother still has that magical touch and I wish to share some of the scenes of Christmas around her home with you. Note the Santa mug in this picture. I used to drink eggnog from it when I was very little.
