Celebration of Light + Snow

Feliz Navidad! Check out the Christmas lights near my home in the above video. Are you ready for Christmas? Gifts, travel, cooking, baking, decorations? As my kids like to tell me, it really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it? Yes, I say. And I mean it. Not the commercialism part. Not the part where kids open gifts, are happy for a few minutes, and then start squabbling over who got what (does this happen to you, too?). But the togetherness, the food, the celebration of Jesus, and, the lights. Spaniards, at least around here, take Christmas lights very seriously.

Cozy, fleece-lined slippers.
What makes you feel cozy as the weather turns cold? Even though I live in the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun) it does get chilly here. This week the temperatures got up in the 60s, but the nights are in the low 50s. There is no heat in our apartment. That means, it is cold inside.
