The smell of Christmas....
The scouts were selling Christmas trees on Saturday were we take the girls for swimming lessons.
They have never had a real tree so I took them over to smell the trees.
I love the smell of Christmas trees. It takes me back to Christmas time as a child. I use to love coming home in December and scent of the tree hitting you as you walked in the door. It was the sensual reminder that Christmas and all its magic was just around the corner.
We picked a few little branches off the ground on Saturday and I have them in a vase and occasionally the perfume radiates.
Maybe next year we don't think about the mess and the cost of a real tree and invest in the smell of Christmas.
What smells remind you of Christmas? Do you go real or fake with your tree?
