Ho Ho Ho people!
What makes you feel like it really is nearly Christmas? It does take me quite a while sometimes now that I’m all grown up to really feel the festive vibe. However, when I was a child there were certain family traditions (seems mostly things we ate!) that would bring my excitement to fever pitch.
I wanted to share them with you today as it’s nearly time for me to sign off from blogging for a little while to do some partying and enjoy the festivities.
1. The Yule Log
Traditionally we bought a chocolate swiss roll and slathered it with chocolate buttercream icing, made with cocoa powder, icing sugar and butter. We would drag the icing with a fork to make it look like bark and then sprinkled it with icing sugar for the snow effect.
