The Scents of The Holidays

Dec 9, 2020

This time of year brings up sense memories. From the crisp (potentially snow-filled) air to the warm notes of cinnamon and sugar wafting through the kitchen, the holidays thrive on our sense of smell.

 

While this holiday season will look different than most, bringing those familiar smells into your space will trigger your brain to remember the sweet memories of Decembers past. Bake your favorite cookies and drop off packages to the friends you aren’t able to see. Sip a mug of hot chocolate and let the creaminess soften your soul. Or fill your house will the smells of cranberries, oranges, and cinnamon with a stovetop potpourri.

 

No matter what reminds you of the season, share it with all you can. Food has the ability to unite people from all parts of the world. If we have learned anything this year, we need community now more than ever. Happy Holidays!
