This Yuletide season I made clove-spiked orange and star anise ornaments to hang in the kitchen window. I added cinnamon sticks to some, and placed a few in a dish with pods and pine cones. The delightful little stained glass disks are a lovely reminder of the sun that is returning at Yule. Now it’s…
The local parks are of course beautiful in the summertime, but in the early winter there is a kind of subtle magic. When we are not distracted by the stunning beauty of flowers, bright green leaves and vibrant energy-giving sunshine, it allows us to slow down and feel the essence of nature, to see and hear the soul of the plants and trees, to listen to the whispers in the breeze, to feel the calm in the flow of the water. Nature is truly in a peaceful slumber… the way I believe we are meant to be during this time of year.

I went out on a search to find relaxing music and videos to play to celebrate the beginning of the magical season, and to play in the background while I decorate for the holidays. I found it a bit of a challenge to find Christmas music and videos that are relaxing and zen, but I had success and decided to share them with all of you! I hope you enjoy your Yule decorating and winter season! Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
