Holiday season

Keeping things sweet for the holiday season

SAN ANGELO, Texas (December 7) – Celebrate the season of giving, family, good love and brotherhood! Even though the weather here in the Concho Valley hasn’t changed to resemble winters of the past, the traditions you wear can still spark the spirit of the season.

I know my favorite part of Christmas is all the traditions I carry on with my family. The one we all know too well is putting up the Christmas tree. Rather real or contrived, this family reunion is one that even the family’s pet is excited about.

My favorite part of this tradition was choosing my style for the year. This year I decided to do things a little differently with my color choices. My Christmas tree color theme this year is blue, gold and a touch of red. The perfect tree should have bells, other family ornaments, Christmas strings or even garlands. More importantly, the choice of stars or treetop is the ultimate finish.

Arranging trees is just the start of many pre-Christmas traditions. While you’re shopping for gifts and enjoying sales, you might develop a sweet tooth. A great way to satisfy those cravings is with holiday treats.

So sweet holiday treats are a great way to get kids involved in baking and Christmas in general. Christmas cookies are the most common with special cutouts and special patterns. It’s a great activity to do with the whole family. When the holidays are approaching, I start baking. The fresh, sweet smells of the kitchen, accompanied by holiday music, will help brighten everyone’s day. Feel free to find recipes and create different Christmas-themed cutouts.

Gingerbread cookies are also a Christmas tradition. Have fun decorating them as a family and savor every bite. They are so cute!

I don’t know about you but one thing I must have as Christmas approaches is a good hot chocolate. Now things have gotten very sophisticated with the way hot chocolate can be made. There are cocoa bombs that have become very famous via Tik Toc over the years. Cocoa bombs can be of all models and are very rich in flavor. However, if you’re stuck on the original traditions, buying the powder and mixing it with hot milk and marshmallows will also work. This tasty and rich drink is one the kids will love for the season.

The weather outside may not be scary, but the treats and traditions are delicious. Feel free to send me your family traditions. The holiday season is here!
