Light the Candles & Deck the Halls
Celebrate December with These Cozy Holiday Ideas and Happenings
We’re kicking off December with a hot cocoa in one hand and an umbrella in the other while holiday window shopping on Alberta… and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
1) Holiday Hygge: Hygge, in the simplest translation, is a super cozy feeling, which is perfect for the holidays. We found two articles that best describe it. One containing DIY projects for the home or to make as gifts – also ideal if you’re trying to keep your own or visiting kiddos busy during a rainy afternoon. Not feeling crafty? We understand; the other article contains great hygge gift ideas (BTW zero judgment if you gift yourself any of the items… like the blankets… or a wreath… or some candles…).
2) Holiday Happenings: Expecting company this month and want to avoid cabin fever? We hear you loud and clear. We found a few calendars and activity guides you may want to bookmark for future reference: Portland Monthly’s Holiday Guide & Mt Hood Activity Guide; Travel Portland’s December Event Calendar; and Thrillist’s Portland Holidays & Christmas Guide.
3) Holiday Spirits: Our very own Chelsea McAllister has an incredible Tres Leches Eggnog recipe you’ll want to serve at your holiday gathering.
Be sure to follow us here on the blog and on Instagram as we share a few of our favorite holiday activities and recipes throughout the month.
