Year after year
Christmas changes.  When you were a child
you were so excited to see if Santa got your letter.  When you were a teenager it was about giving
to your friends.  As an adult it’s about
being with family, and when/if you have children giving them amazing memories.  Sadly when something happens in a family and there
are changes, it’s hard to make Christmas the same as it used to be.
My father was very
into Christmas.  He loved taking that
extra step to make things amazing for us. Like when I was 8 or 9, I wanted an
American Doll.  I had circled just about
everything in the catalog.  Christmas morning
I woke up to find Kirsten sitting on top of a beautiful wood box.  Being my father was talented with building
things he decided to make the trunk and bed that Kirsten had in her books
instead of purchasing one.  He put a
special touch to my gift and  I still
have the trunk and smile when I see it.
We lost my father
when I was 21.  I don’t think any of us
realized how much that would change the holidays for us.  I met my husband that same year and I spent
Christmas with him.  My mom and brother went
to my aunt’s house, and my sister spent it with her beau.  No matter how long it’s been since we had a
family Christmas together we all still carry on the traditions.
These Glade® Limited
Edition Winter Collection
fragrances help get me into the spirit of
Christmas.  Scents have an amazing way of
bringing up good memories.  The BE AT PEACE™ Jar Candle reminds me how my dad, mom,
and I would go to the Christmas tree farm and select our tree for that year,
then cut it down!  Something about a
fresh tree you cut yourself makes it more special.  My husband and I don’t put up a Christmas tree;
however, I do use the BE AT PEACE™ Jar Candle to remind me of the trees we had
when I was a child.

One thing we always
did as a family was bake cookies for Santa. 
Our house would be filled with wonderful scents of tasty treats.  I still bake at Christmas and love that my
house is filled with the aroma.  Which is
why I love to use SEND A LITTLE LOVE™ Wax Melts and PlugIns® Scented Oils.  It adds a comforting scent to my home andp my
husband prefers vanilla scents. 

Each year Glade® comes out with
amazing holiday scents.  SHARE THE SPIRIT™ is going to be a staple premium
room spray for us this season.  The
citrus aromas of tangerine, grapefruit and winter rose, along with pomegranate,
perk up my home for guests.  Not to
mention CHERISH THE PRESENT™ will be used when the fire is
burning bright.  Hints of apples and
cinnamon mingling with a wood fire remind me of winter at my grandmother’s
house.  Find all the Glade® Limited Edition
Winter Collection fragrances at your local Kroger.

The new Glade® Limited Edition
Winter Collection brings the scents of the season into my home and reminds me
of my favorite memories. #HolidayWithGlade
