I associate Christmas with Winter because of where I spent them as a child. As much as I liked Georgia, for 18 years Christmas never seemed like Christmas to us. My honey and I actually missed the cold and the look of winter. Beside autumn, Winter is my favorite season. It's clean feeling and it seems "right" to me.
I bought this 46-inch metal "snowflake" at Old Time Pottery nearly five years ago for less than $20.00. I painted it white, allowing some of the metal patina to show through. It reminds me of Winter and, consequently, Christmas. That's why it's in my bedroom. It's one of the first and last things I see each day. What reminds you of Christmas beside the obvious decorations?
