The holiday season is wonderful for all senses. The smell of fresh biscuits, the taste of gingerbread, along with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, the shine of candlelight, and the sound of crackling wrapping paper are all indicators that Christmas is just around the corner. In the winter season, there is nothing better than celebrating the best time of the year, wearing your own cozy, homemade ugly Christmas sweater.
