Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose…
Growing up in southern California, the holidays consisted of palm trees, sun and Santa’s on surfboards. Jack Frost did nip our noses in the mornings, but by the afternoon we were sunning ourselves on the beach. I remember one year when I was in elementary school, we looked out the window and it was snowing! The teachers let all of us out to play in it because they knew how special the moment was. It only snowed for 10 minutes, but we were beyond excited!
We all dream of cozy moments during the holidays, but the reality can be far different. Regardless of where we live, we often swap out the “heavenly peace” for battling crowds at
he mall and eating our way through those holiday parties with their abundance of food and yummy drinks. Before we know it the holidays have stolen our joy and increased our waistlines.
