Loving

Rocking around the Christmas Tree

at the Christmas party hop

Mistletoe hung where you can see

Ev’ry couple tries to stop

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing

“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly” Rocking around the Christmas Tree

Have a happy holiday

Everyone’s dancing merrily

In a new old fashioned way

Rocking around the Christmas Tree

Let the Christmas Spirit ring

Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie

and we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing

“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rocking around the Christmas Tree

Have a happy holiday

Everyone’s dancing merrily

In a new old fashioned way

When I hear the above song on the radio, I know that the holidays are here! So make some hot cocoa, wrap up in cashmere and sing along! I am always a sucker for holiday themed and scented lotions especially when they are made by Philosophy. My current favorite is Philosophy’s Melting Marshmallow Cream, it is a light, fluffy and decadent lotion that smells like a hot marshmallow just pulled from a roasting fired and sandwiched between chocolate and graham crackers. Yum! Available online at www.sephora.com and your local Sephora stores.

Here is a yummy recipe for no-fire s’mores:

Ingredients

6 whole graham crackers

1 bag mini marshmallows

3 (1.55 ounces) Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, split into 2

Directions

Split graham cracker into 2 halves. On top of graham cracker squares place mini-marshmallows. Place under broiler for a few seconds until toasty. Remove and place 1/2 of a Hershey bar on top of marshmallow. The heat from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate bar. Place other 1/2 of graham cracker on top. Press lightly to flatten marshmallows. These may be made ahead and wrapped in plastic wrap until ready to heat and eat.
