As a little girl Christmas was always such a huge deal in my home. I remember how my parents would go all out to make sure that Christmas was always better every year.  From the lights all over our outside lawn and our Christmas tree not only 7 feet tall but decorated from head to toe, there was never an inch that was missed.  The smell of gingerbread cookies baking the night before to leave for Santa with a nice cup of Hot Chocolate, because you know Santa must be able to warm his tummy before his long ride through the night. 

Each year my parents would give each of me and my siblings a chance to put up the Angel on top of the tree.  I think every year we would always fight and say it was mine but we ended sharing anyways.  One thing I can never forget are the smells of candles burning through the house.  My mother has an obsession with sweet smelling candles, especially come the holidays the house is filled with minty, pumpkin scents.  I think that may be the reason why I love scented candles so much, it not only makes my house smell terrific but reminds me of my childhood. As a parent I try to share the same experiences I remember as a little girl and add some of our own traditions as well.  I love the tradition we have of gathering every Christmas Eve around the tree reading a book listening to music and drinking a mug of hot coffee.



When I was asked if I wanted to reminisce on some Holiday Nostalgia with Dunkin Donuts® how could I say no.  One! I absolutely LOVE donuts, especially their Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts.  Just warm those puppies up and down it with a piping hot cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee.  Ohhh Weeee there is nothing better. and Two!  I LOVE Coffee!

I guess I’m pretty lucky because I have a Dunkin Donuts® by my house but I also have the ability to purchase their delicious packaged coffee at my local grocery stores.  Whether you have a Dunkin Donuts® store available by where you live, you too have the ability to purchase and enjoy your favorite coffee.  With so many flavors to choose from: Original Blend, Dunkin’ Decaf® and special seasonal varieties including Mocha Mint, Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread Cookie. But act fast as these seasonal varieties are only available for a limited time.  

Do you have a favorite holiday memory that comes to mind…. would love to hear some!
