Tis The Season…to gather AND be merry!

Christmastime is one of my most favorite festive celebrations in my home.  My home simply changes; we put up joyful scenes of little villages, listen to different music, bake different goodies, and collectively, it changes our hearts, words, and attitudes.  To me, this is the true meaning of Christmas: the change that came about in the world when our Savior was born.  Jesus was born to demonstrate to us all how to live in a broken world, around broken hearts and bad mindsets.  This is the reason my home celebrates this day with great rejoicing, showing love to one another, giving of ourselves and of our time. This is why I created this gift for other families to enjoy this year and hopefully at an affordable cost to you. 

This 5-Piece Christmas Spice Set holds not just spices but an opportunity to gather with others and bring in a new tradition or expand on an old one. But, above all, my hope is it will bring family and friends closer together by making memories that will last far beyond one day.   What you cannot see inside holds an instructional poem for the only decorated ornament:  The Christmas Pickle.  Some of you may know that it is a German tradition to hide a pickle in the tree secretly; the first to find it in the morning receives an extra surprise.  Our ornament holds the treasure inside with Dill Pickle Seasoning Salt to shake over popcorn, French fries, or anything else you desire. The other ornaments all contain different spices:

Gingerbread Spice – to add to drinks or baked goods            

Vegetable Dip – to make as a treat to those who gather for a movie, to play a game, etc.

Onion Soup – to warm an individual

Garlic Seasoning – to make instant garlic bread for any meal or to add flavor to any cut of meat

I feel this set is more about preserving the spirit of Christmas in our hearts, and I hope you find use for it regardless of whether you decide to give it away or keep it for yourself.  This is why I am offering a $5 discount on this particular set. Just use PROMO CODE:  SPIRIT when ordering.  This offer expires on December 30th, but please order by the 15th if you would like it to arrive before Christmas.

I do have other fun Christmas options, Snowflake Christmas jars filled with baked goods and ornaments filled with a variety of different things, that I would be happy to customize with a person’s name or year, if I can…free of charge to anyone who sends me an email at TisTheSeasonNY@gmail.com and enters SPIRIT in the subject line. 

Thank for being a part of TisTheSeasonNY.com throughout this past year, for witnessing how God moves in my life, and for your continued support.  As always, I would love if you joined my Facebook and Instagram communities and would appreciate reviews on my Google Profile, as well.

Merry Christmas!
