In our home, the entire month of December is for celebration and making joyful memories. We plan a fun holiday advent calendar filled with ideas, crafts, and adventures. For 25 days we countdown to Christmas and enjoy doing something small (or big!) each day.

There is nothing better than the twinkling lights of a Christmas tree, the glow of a fire, our holiday candles lit and all of us cuddled together watching a Christmas movie. It’s what I’ve always wished for!

Candles are truly an important part of our holiday traditions and decor. Having the house smelling of Christmas trees and hot chocolate is by far something we all enjoy. Yankee Candle has a NEW Holiday Countdown Collection and it’s wonderful! The fragrances are Tree Farm Festival, Twinkling Lights, Merry Berry, and Movie Night Cocoa. 

Christmas holiday platter

We were inspired by movie night hot cocoa for one of our holiday activities, so I created the ultimate hot chocolate tier filled with candy, marshmallows are more that can all be used as toppings for our homemade hot chocolate. 

This is a simpler take on a hot chocolate bar but perfect for families and holiday movie nights. 

You’ll need a galvanized tier to fill with holiday treats! You can also use a flat platter to assemble all of these desserts.
