For many it’s a fragrance that brings a memory fully to mind. Does the scent of evergreens, peppermint, mulling spices, or mothballs unwrap the holidays of the past for you?
Or is the feel of glitter, velvet, ice, or the deep warmth of a fire that makes you recall?
Which gustatory delight takes you back with its taste? Popcorn balls, chocolate covered cherries, or hot cocoa?
Is it the sound of bells, the shattering of ornaments, the tinkle of a music box, or the hoot of a toy train that harkens you to a certain moment?
Or is it the sight of glistening snow, tinsel strewn trees, or mountains of crumpled wrapping paper?
Whatever the sense, savor the memory and write it down.
