Christmas by Candlelight

Yesterday we visited OSV (Old Sturbridge Village) . Our dinner reservations were for 4:15 p.m. so we got there early enough to poke around the store and walk up to the village green and take a horse drawn carriage ride. Dinner was delicious and afterwards we walked around the village visiting the houses and taking part in all the activities that were offered. We drank hot mulled cider, made a delicious smelling sachet and met Father Christmas. It got quite cold so it felt very seasonal and we enjoyed the carols being sung and the learning to dance the Sir Roger de Coverley in the Parsonage Barn.

I thought that you are going to light up your house with candles. I think that will heat up the house a bit. i personally do not like candle-light dinner. I prefer to eat in full light, so that I can see if the vegetables or the fish color is right.

Awww, sounds like you had a wonderful and romantic time! I don't know but something about candle-lit dinner and hot cider spells love for me. I was hoping that me and the boyfriend will be able to pull something like that during the holidays. He has the time off until next year after the new year's, but I have to work on some days in between the holidays. It will be tricky to juggle the parties we already said yes to and at the same time have some quality time. But with that, I am still excited with the holidays.
