Christmas Magic with HRC!

It's finally December! The time of year when I don't have to hide my extraordinary enthusiasm for all things Christmas! 

This month I'm taking photos every day of all the magically delicious Christmas things that catch my eye in Shanghai. 

Three cheers for Christmas! Hip hip hooray! 

Tonight we had our group of creative friends over to enjoy some made-from-scratch turkey soup using up the leftovers from Thanksgiving. We also made paper Advent chains to count the days down to Christmas, and watched A Charlie Brown Christmas, which was originally released in 1965. The depression Charlie Brown felt all those years ago over holiday fatigue and wondering what it's all about is just as relavent today. Never gets old. 


And, unrelated to Christmas, but certainly to December in many places, we are in the middle of a cold snap. Temps will dip below freezing this week. It's actually hovering at freezing right now. Bah humbug! Neither Lucy Rocket nor myself are a fan. She just can't hide her disdain for the chilly wind...


Happy December! Here's to finding meaning this Christmas season!
