Little house on remote island is Day 3 of the 12 Days of Gotts. Way back in the day we were the only year round residents and Christmas was always super special. Think Laura Ingalls Wilder. First it got dark early and light was so important. I always made a gingerbread house with stained glass sugar windows. The house sat on a box with a hole cut for a flashlight. It was so magical in our house with a few boat lights and kerosene lamps.
It’s a great memory but I don’t make gingerbread houses anymore. No kids, electric lights and honestly they are beautiful but a bit wasteful. Still that’s why we have memories.
