Traditions are a big part of Linderhof
And on the Sunday after Thanksgiving
We always make the first batch of Christmas cookies
Mother's cut-out cookies
Always with the Christmas tree cookie cutter
(which was also hers)
And sprinkled with green sugar
Sometimes I add a red hot to the top -- but not always!
And Sunday afternoon,
We have a Cup of Christmas Tea
Our only Christmas decoration is the Advent Wreath
A real evergreen wreath
(It makes the house smell amazing!)
That Sunday afternoon cup of tea with the freshly baked cookies!
And the Royal Doulton Tartan
And since it's a special tea, the silver teapot!
