12 Days of Christmas, #1

I am so excited about this. It’s a Snippet & Ink Christmas! Leading up to December 25th, I will be sharing some of my favorite traditions and gift ideas, as well as posting special boards (see below). I know, I know. The twelve days of Christmas really don’t start until Christmas day, but for me, the start of Christmas happens the day after Thanksgiving. For some people, it’s all about sales and anarchic shopping sprees. Growing up, this was usually the day my mom would take us to find a Christmas tree. These days, for me, it’s the day I allow myself to start listening to Christmas music (I say allow, because sometime around Halloween is when I start wanting to put it on, but that’s just ridiculous), and that is when it really starts to feel like Christmas. So, to celebrate, I am posting a special 12 Days of Christmas board.

Also, check in later to see my Christmas playlist!
