The holiday season is a busy one. Our calendars and to-do lists fill up and make us a little frazzled, (maybe even a lot frazzled) and sometimes it feels like the entire month of December flies by at lightning speed. When this happens, I tend to get a bit of a homebody vibe going. I don’t want to go anywhere… I just want to be home and have all of my family home with me.
One of my favorite holiday comforts is so simple that I feel kind of dorky sharing it, but here goes: I love having a fire in the fireplace and something yummy to drink. Yep. A fire and a beverage and I’m good, thanks.
The boys even love it. They’ll lay there and just watch the fire. It’s nice to just be in the room and enjoy the fire and the Christmas tree and each other’s company. A perfect evening means that we’re playing a game together or watching a Christmas movie too.
One of our favorite holiday drinks is wassail. Everyone makes it a little differently, but here is our recipe:
- 2 quarts apple cider
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 2 whole cinnamon sticks
- 1 Tbsp of whole cloves
- sugar or honey to taste (we never add any)
Combine all ingredients and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Serve hot. (It’s pretty darn good with a healthy slug of brandy in it too…)
So there you have it… a roaring fire and a tasty beverage and I am one happy girl. What are some of the holiday comforts that you love?
