The holidays are a time to enjoy the wonderful season with family and friends. But that special time of year also brings added tension to your home when preparing for guests and events. Memories of the holidays in my childhood home are very special to me and I want to create those lasting memories with my children, too. For me, a holiday home begins with that wonderful smell of a Christmas tree. We have an artificial tree, but are not missing out on the fresh pine scent because of Glade® Timeless Joy™. The woodland spruce scent has our home smelling amazing this holiday season! There’s also something sensational about the scent of warm cinnamon apples in your home. Glade®  Happy Glow™ cinnamon apple scent products are adding to the surprising bursts of joy at our house and inspired an amazing caramel apple cider recipe. The homemade apple cider is everything you would imagine the perfect cold day to be wrapped up in a warm cup drizzled with caramel.

Glade®  holiday products are adding to the memories we are creating for our children. Very specific holiday scents evoke emotion for me and I love sharing those same smells in our home. Epic home transformations for the holidays begin with a cup of warm caramel apple cider, the smell of a holiday tree and a lit Glade® Happy Glow™3.4 oz Small Jar Candle.

Cover and simmer for six hours. The cider brings an amazing smell to your home. But because we can’t make homemade apple cider everyday, the Glade®  3.4 oz. Small Jar Candle in Happy Glow™ will remind you of the day your family made homemade apple cider and decorated the holiday tree. My seven year old daughter enjoyed her first time helping make the homemade cider and I was smiling knowing this will be a forever holiday memory and family tradition each year.

Enjoy the warm apple cider right from the pot.
