Living in southern Spain we do get a feel for Christmas and the holidays, but this year we decided to head to Scotland for the holidays. We wanted an authentic Edinburgh Christmas with all of the markets, music, activities, food, & lights. Of course along with that, we were also expecting chilly and rainy weather, but we also had a bit of a surprise!
The other day Anya was requesting that we have a traditional Christmas at home. She continued by explaining she wanted it to be cold, with snow, a big decorated Christmas tree, and loads of our family. While I know I’ve had plenty of Christmas experiences with all of that, I realized she hadn’t. We have experienced Christmas vacations “away” from our home for most of her life and only a couple of times with snow.
