This Slow Cooker Cranberry Spice Mulled Punch takes me back in time…
When I was little I used to get pretty excited about the holidays. Putting up the tree and and the decorations (fake snow and all!) and the outside lights was a little magical.
Of course we had Christmas lights that looked like that.
Oh, and those bubble lights that were a huge fire hazard? Yeah, we had those too and I LOVED them so much. Did you have those?
I’m not really sure how we survived the 70s but we did. And the holiday music was playing on the record player (yes, the vinyl) and the amazing smell of holiday baking would waft throughout the house and all was well with the world.
These days we live a little vicariously through our kids – keeping that holiday magic alive. I DO believe that certain smells can take us right back to a certain place in time, however.
This Slow Cooker Cranberry Spice Mulled Punch recipe does that for me. Which memory or smell does that for you?
