Christmas Senses

“I wonder whether the Christmas feeling has anything to do with the sixth sense. Perhaps we're a little more the angels at Christmas than we are during the rest of the year. And Christmas is about all the other senses. I can smell Christmas, I can taste Christmas, and I can see and hear it.” 
Jostein Gaarder, Norwegian author in Through a Glass, Darkly 

I planned to title this post "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" because I put up some lights in my window and the kitchen was looking a little 'snowy'. Then I realized that the scent of sweets baking in the oven is making my little abode smell a lot like Christmas and with the Carols from Clare playing in the background it sounds a lot like Christmas too. You can probably guess that a nibble from the corner of "Sweetie Pie's Gingerbread Cookie Bar" (oh man!) is making it taste a lot like Christmas. And for the final sense: well, I'm having such a fun time that I'm feeling very warm and very happy.

As for Jostein Gaarder's sixth sense of Christmas, I am intuiting a very good year ahead, full of hope, peace, joy and love. May it be so. Amen.

These gingerbread cookie bars are also on my Christmas baking list. Can't wait for Mom and Dad to bring the perfectly paired "G" wine with them next week.
