Children's christmas sings
Smell of wood fires burning
Seeing the fall leaves on the ground
The crunch of the leaves walking to the mailbox
Decorating for Christmas
Wrens visiting the front porch
Pine boughs and holly berries
Real sausage and sage stuffing
Waking to cool, misty mornings
Hearing birds and rabbits scratching in the leaves
Afternoon tea by the fire
Evening cider by the warm hearth
A wonderful book
The touch of a familiar hand
The smell of bayberry and cinnamon
The sound of a child's joy at the first snowfall
