I ♡ Christmas Trees!

The Christmas Tree ~ one of my ultimate favourite things at Christmas time!  I love trees all year round but there is something very uplifting for the spirit when you gaze at a beautifully decorated and lit Christmas tree!

It doesn’t matter what you put on it.  It can be minimal or eccentric or just simply a sentimental tradition with the same decorations every year! Or add ons as the years go by, making new memories that we remember each year at this festive time!

I just adore this song, so wanted to share with you all.  I’ve been humming it all the time since we put up our tree and my little one has been singing along too!

I’m sure you will be humming it after reading this too ~

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; Not only green when summer’s here, But also when ’tis cold and drear.  O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Much pleasure thou can’st give me; O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Much pleasure thou can’st give me; How often has the Christmas tree, Afforded me the greatest glee! O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Much pleasure thou can’st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy candles shine so brightly! O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy candles shine so brightly! From base to summit, gay and bright, There’s only splendor for the sight.O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy candles shine so brightly!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! How richly God has decked thee! O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! How richly God has decked thee! Thou bidst us true and faithful be, And trust in God unchangingly.O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! How richly God has decked thee!!”

Christmassy Tasting Coffee ☆

image

I am feeling all Christmassy already!  And I just adore this time of year. The lights, the Christmas trees, decorations and most importantly the Food & DrinkTo celebrate with amongst family and friends!

I thought let me get into the mood by making myself a cup of coffee with mixed ground spice.  A scent that starts to capture the Christmas season, through its aroma and taste

Simply make your usual cup of coffee and stir in some mixed spice powder!

I found a beautiful recipe if you want to make fresh ground mixed spice.  I’ll definitely be attempting this as soon as I need to restock!
