I love the Holidays: the Christmas fragrances bring back many fond memories of my childhood and I want the same for my daughters, so we have some traditions we do every year here in Houston.
For example, we bake Honey Gingerbread Cookies and the aroma that fills the house is exquisite. We enjoy the cookies for weeks and share with friends. Also, the Friday after Thanksgiving, we set up the Christmas tree, as we drink apple cider with cinnamon, and listen to Christmas carols.
For me, smells and aromas produce many memories, so when I saw the new Glade® Winter Collection I wanted to try them, especially the Frosted Cookie Party™ and Apple Cinnamon Cheer™.
I went to the HEB close to home and found both fragrances and much more: food, plates, napkins, and decorations for my celebrations at home. I returned loaded with cider, cheese, and listening in the car to Christmas carols fully ready to start the decorating and cooking. When I got home, I light the candle for Christmas in the living room where we have the Christmas tree and the Frosted Cookie Party™ Auto Spray in the kitchen. The aromas are perfect, and although we are not decorating the Christmas tree or making cookies every day, our house smells like it and it immediately makes my day.
