CHRISTMAS IN SCOTLAND (and other places) by Lecia Cornwall

Ah, Christmas in the Scottish Highlands. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

My wonderful mother-in-law was Scottish, born in Glasgow. I remember telling her about an ad I’d seen in a magazine, offering a Scottish castle for rent over the holidays. Visitors (up to twenty people) could come and spend a glorious Christmas in the Highlands. My mother-in-law looked at me as if I were daft, and said, “Are you crazy? It’s cold and damp in the Highlands, and those old castles are drafty. You’d never get warm or dry!” Not very romantic, perhaps, but practical. It certainly is easier to enjoy a white Christmas from indoors, by the fire, with good company, a Christmas tree, and a hot drink. Our Christmases with my in-laws here in Canada were always warm and wonderful, and though she might not have welcomed winter in a Highland castle, my mother-in-law brought the best Scottish traditions with her, and never stopped longing to be in Scotland.
