Holiday Thought (Rant) of the Day

As I am putting up my holiday decor - working on another Pottery Barn knock-off (posts coming soon, if I can find my camera cord), I got to thinking...[begin rant]

Who decided that APPLE CINNAMON was the scent of the season?!
For real. I absolutely despise that smell! It is in every store. It's like someone put a pillow over my face when I walk in! Even the pines are scented - not with PINE but with apple cinnamon.

Why not vanilla? cranberry? sweet potato even? Seriously, apple cinnamon?!

If you had your choice, what would be YOUR preferred holiday scent? [rant over] Let me get back to Frebrezing these pine cones...

Never thought to febreeze the pine cones (is that one word or 2?). I HATE the smell of artificial cinnamon. It's fine in food and stuff, but I don't like that "spicy" smell of the season. I'm with you--who made that the official scent? I love chocolate, but I would take another food smell, or spice smell. I'd prefer vanilla, to tell you the truth. I don't buy that stuff. I stick with Ergo soy cangles in Mango. Clean & fresh.

I'm ashamed to say I like that scent! Oh and vanilla! You're so funny!

I have to say apple cinnamon - definitely not my favorite scent. I'll some Christmas Cookie instead!

Yeah I don't do the cinnamon either. I have to agree with Dayka and say vanilla and chocolate would be a nice change. Or maybe for me chocolate and mint. Not vapor rub smelling mint, but hot chocolate & mint. And lol @ Annette "your ethnicity is showing" that's hilarious!
