Although, I was born in Latin America, I most closely associate Christmas with the wintry chill of Toronto or the Rockies.
To me, gently falling snowflakes, the warmth of a fireplace, cozy sweaters, and frost on the window, are the epitome of yule time. Which is why this year I’m finding it somewhat difficult to get into the Christmas spirit. Because aside from the times when I was just passing through, this marks my very first Christmas (since I was 7) living in a temperate climate.
Please don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Vancouver! But my brain is having a hard time reconciling the relatively mild rainy weather with Christmas. So much so that we have yet to purchase a Christmas tree!
For shame right? Which is why tomorrow night, the Husband and I will buy a tree and get started with some merry making! After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!!

Question: Do you have any recommendations for getting into the Christmas mood? Is there one tradition that always serves to remind you that Christmas is actually here?
