Personal Notes:
Tree decoration is always accompanied by mugs of this hot, spicy, and colorful concoction. Even in tropical, non-Christmasy Houston, the smell of the punch made us all feel festive. Christmas Eve, during gift opening, was the other occasion which called for the delicious, fragrant drink.
