I’m extra excited about the holidays this year because it will be the first time in four years I will have Christmas and my birthday in Buffalo. I’m hoping the early snow is a sign of things to come and it’s a nice white December. I’ll be catching up with extended family I haven’t seen in who knows how many years, hopefully building a snowman or two and indulging in piles of homemade Christmas cookies under the shining lights of a giant, decorated tree.
So I thought it would be fun to compile a few wish lists of festive things, from the all-important Christmas jumper to bobbles for the tree to crackers for the table and cards to send off to friends.
