    Smells of christmas

    As a visually-impaired child in the 1970s I remember the new plastic smell of toys on christmas morning, it never seemed to last beyond that day. No doubt by now most of those plastics have been condemned as a health hazard but I loved that smell...
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    ...and I loved the smell of the freshly baked Christmas kourabiedes and melomakarona. Traditional Christmas pastries. And the smell of cinnamon...always a favorite.

    And the smell of pine trees at Christmas!
    If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give Love away...

    Pine trees and cinnamon. The smell of mulled wine, or glögg as we call it here in Denmark, also really puts me in the Christmas mood.

    as a kid growing up in the 70's my grandma's house on my father's side always smelled of smoke because so many smoked back then. Couldn't smell the Christmas tree . Grandparents on my mother's side didn't smoke, nobody did so the fireplace smell is what i remember most, that great warm fire place
