Christmas is knocking on the door and while I am still wondering where 2016 actually went,
I'm always ready for this end of the year. For me, the sweet scent of mangoes trigger those instant 'it's Christmas feelings' ~ cool refreshing fruits that take the edge off the summer heat. It's also the end of the school year, some businesses even close for a few weeks and everyone just generally relaxes for that period from December 25 to New Year. It really is that holiday time of year!
Prior to this however it can be a little insane, so many things to do, see, plan, bake and shop for.
For me, ever since I began my little handmade business, it was always a busy time holding market stalls and dashing to the post office. The thrill of Christmas craft fairs and the crossing of fingers, as I posted parcels, that the last-minute larry's would have their gifts in time for the big day.
