Eggnog, a yummy treat for Christmas

At home we have the tradition to decorate the Christmas tree on the night of the 23rd of December and drink Glühwein (mulled wine) while we're doing so.

Since it's very hard to find Glühwein in Australia we opted for a change of tradition and made some eggnog last night while we were decorating the tree. 
Super creamy and yummy and tastes Christmassy!

Gingerbread Men Garland - an edible Christmas decoration

This year is going way too fast... When I arrived in Australia in October I thought I had a lot of time before Christmas but now it seems like the last two months just passed in a blur...

I'm mostly giving away home-made gifts this year, when I found this cute idea in the current Donna Hay magazine I thought it's worth giving it a go since I had never made gingerbread before and they worked out reallly well!
