I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
I have several triggers
Drinking hot cocoa.
The smell of Cherry Chapstick.
The smell of sage and celery: Growing up I would wake up on Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings to my mom making stuffing with celery, onion and sage.
Scotch Tape - from all the tape that was used to wrap the gifts.
Any pine scents.
Wow, I thought about the scent of stuffing, and I could almost see all my relatives that sat around the Christmas dinner table when I was a kid. Good times!

I love using Christmas scents from Yankee Candle throughout the year. I have candles and room sprays. Some of my favorites are Sparkling Cinnamon, Christmas Tree and Christmas Cookie.
And I would also say sugar cookies always make me think of Christmas. Anytime I bake sugar cookies I am tempted to pull out the Christmas cookie cutters, no matter what time of the year it is!
Those are some of my favorite Yankee scents, too! I have Christmas Wreath in my dining room, something Harvest in my living room and Sparkling Cinnamon in our bedroom... I think something pine in the bathroom.. lol.
I wish it could be Christmas forever...
Any smell of Pine trees makes me think of the Season.
Also the smell and taste of molasses makes me dream of gingersnap cookies and eating them in front of the fire.
Also when I cook a country ham, we always eat that at Christmas, makes me think of family and wishing we were closer
Christmas or bust!!!
