Favourite Holiday Drink

Surprisingly, my all time favourite holiday drink is peppermint white hot chocolate. Specifically,  the one from Tim Hortons which they call “Candy Cane White Hot Chocolate”.  This drink is the complete opposite of what I usually reach for when craving for a hot beverage – plain green or oolong tea (no fancy flavours here).

So I am investing my time this weekend to get prepared for this wonderful holiday and in order to do so, I have compiled a list of things to do.

Here is a glimpse of my ‘Let’s get prepared for Christmas’ list:
