I am so excited to share a glimpse of our home all decked up for the holidays. T’is season is about love, family time, great food and decking the halls. It is such a wonderful feeling to come to a house in the evening that is lighted up.
One of the questions I get a lot is, whether we celebrate Christmas traditionally ( since we are not Catholics by religion) or if it is something that we started doing after moving to Boston. As a matter of fact, I have been celebrating Christmas right from back when I was in India. Mom made it a point to celebrate all festivals of all cultures at home ( India is an extremely culturally diverse country as you know ) and for Christmas, my brother and I would decorate a little tree we had inside the house and always find gifts under it on Christmas morning. Also, the mister and I both attended convent schools so the significance and festivities of this season mean a lot to us.
I have always wanted to have a white Christmas Tree and this year finally, we go this one from Grandin Road. I even picked up two mini frosted trees to create a Christmas village.
If we are not traveling around this time of the year and are in Boston on Christmas Eve, Amit and I have a tradition to attend the midnight mass at the Trinity Church. It is a beautiful service and fills our hearts with so much joy and gratitude.
Before I sign off for the weekend, I want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday. Try to stay away from your phone, be present in the moment, make wonderful memories with your loved ones and share the blessings we receive. If I had my way, I’d give each of you my signature big enveloping hug =)) xo Neha
