Christmas has a special place in my heart. As I still believe in Santaclaus and feel one day genuine Santa will come and give me some gifts lol. Christmas comes with cold chills, snow, gifts, prayers, celebrations, sweet and family time.

Even the Christmas mass is quite special its chilled. The weather, environment, people wearing lovely clothes, sweets make them extra special. I love Christmas eve and the entire week till new year’s eve.

I am sure all of us  have a lot of memories associated with different festive occasions. Also we all look forward to celebrate them right. I still have a kid in me when christmas comes. I look forward to many things like cakes, desserts, sweets, gifts, prayers and lots love!

    Great that you put all these links together here. I still have some dates, so the date cake link does have my interest. I really have enjoyed your posts this year and I look forward to our continued sharing into next year and the rest of this year. Not sure of your schedule, (I will be blogging for another few weeks before the holidays) but if our comments don’t cross until after the new year I wish you a wonderful celebration full of laughter, love and, of course, wonderful food.
