I get very excited about Christmas! I love the lights, the decorations, the festivities but most of all I love that it's a time of year that brings out the warmth and friendliness in everyone. It also helps that Burlington, VT can usually be counted on for a White Christmas. That's my all-time favorite Christmas movie, by the way.
This year will be even more special because on Saturday, we're heading to nearby (1 1/2 hour drive) Woodstock for their annual Wassail Weekend. There's so much to see and do. Lots of food, music, and crafts...oh, and the famous Wassail Parade in the afternoon. Did I mention food? Think hot and tangy chili , mulled cider, and of course, the popular Wassail Feast at the Woodstock Inn that happens right after the lighting of The Green.
It's truly magical and what makes it even more special this year is who I'm going with. Tyler Devine! Can you believe it? My favorite (don't tell him I called him that!) PI has some Christmas spirit! It promises to be a very special day.
What special happening or person will light up your Christmas this year?
