House Beautiful (UK) - - NORWEGIAN RETREAT -

1 Chil­dren’s laugh­ter Our door is al­ways open, and friends and fam­ily bring their chil­dren round. They bake, make gifts and Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, sing and play board games.

2 Hot choco­late Made from scratch and served with cream.

3 Christ­mas mu­sic Old favourites, like Bing Crosby’s White Christ­mas.

4 Lots of candles We spend more money on candles than we do on ac­tual elec­tric­ity in De­cem­ber!

5 In­her­ited items The house is full of them; it’s some­thing I’ve been taught to ap­pre­ci­ate since I was a lit­tle girl. Mem­o­ries are im­por­tant.
