Let it Snow

The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, credit to Dean Martin for this seasonal cheery tune, which gets us all in the festive mood at this time of the year. The days are becoming shorter, so enjoy the magic of winter nestled by an open fires warm nostalgic glow, sipping mulled wine or wrap up warm and venture out to look around the stalls at a festive Christmas market or enjoy the fun of ice skating and drinking mugs of steaming hot chocolate.

We are all enamoured with the sheer beauty of the season, falling snow blanketing everywhere with a shimmering reflecting radiance. Winter is a whimsical time of year when the first winter gust blusters through the trees you can sense the magic in the air, and as the first snowflake flurries to the ground, everything transforms into a winter wonderland.

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” A lovely festive quote by Edith Sitwell, Merry Christmas.
