glade candlesThe other day someone asked me what the holidays mean to me. Good question. Too often during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season we forget the true purpose. So today,  I decided to share with you what the holidays mean to me. glade winterTo me, the holidays mean spending time with the people I love. Having everyone I truly love and care about at my house is the best gift I could ask for. The holiday season reminds me to focus on what really matters (so what if we didn’t capture the perfect Christmas photo), doing what you love as often as you can in the company of those who make your life complete. glade winterglade winterChristmas is about LOVE, family, friends and memory making. Not the gifts or stress of gift giving, but making one another smile with simple measures of kindness.glade winterThe holidays are about memories of the past holidays, and people we miss. Let’s not forget to CHERISH the present and give thanks.glade winterglade winterThe holidays are also about pausing a moment from the hustle and taking in all the PEACE we can.  The soft glow of a Glade®  JarCandle helps transform any room in my house into a magical, peaceful place. There’s no feeling in the world more comforting than a soft light that illuminates an entire room.

Glade WinterEnjoying a peaceful SPIRIT and a sense of joy is what makes the holiday season so special. The wonderful scents of the season can evoke a sentiment. The Glade®  Limited Edition Winter Collection fragrances can transport us back to a cold December afternoon, or to our mother’s kitchen with cookies baking in the oven. The other day, I picked up each fragrance from the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection at Kroger. Glade candlesThe Glade®  Limited Edition Winter Collection reminds me of home and memories, feelings and a past time I long for. My favorite fragrance is the Glade®  SHARE THE SPIRIT Pomegranate Sparkler™.Glade candlesTo me, the holidays also mean traditions. Traditions make me feel connected to my parents and grandparents. One of our favorite traditions  is singing all the Christmas songs.glade winterAnd of course, baking lots and lots of cookies.
