For me, it’s the Nutcracker soundtrack. My old elementary school did a performance every year, so nothing is more Christmas-like to me than listening to the Nutcracker. I didn’t listen to it this year until just now… And now, FINALLY, I believe it’s Christmas. What tells you that it’s Christmas?

The smell of a Christmas tree and watching a decorated tree twinkling away at night! Cookies with red and green sprinkles. When the radio stations start playing Christmas music.

Rosemary. I don’t know why. We made a rack of lamb tonight and I have an indoor herb garden, Rosemary always reminds me of Christmas.
