listening to christmas music 24/7. flannel sheets. getting snowed in. mimi’s homemade baked brie. festivus shenanigans. advent calenders. sledding on textbooks. ice skating at beaver dam. the smell of evergreen. hot chocolate (and baileys). matt’s annual christmas party. fuzzy slippers. decorating the tree whilst blasting handel’s messiah. my snowman hot-water bottle. fondue feasts on christmas eve. knee-high cashmere socks. gathering around the fireplace. spontaneous caroling. pumpkin pie. watching it’s a wonderful life for the hundredth time. oversized sweaters. finishing a book on the night before christmas.
