How do you celebrate Christmas in your family? When you become parents, you get an opportunity to think about this in a different way. What traditions from your own childhood do you carry forward? Are there things you want to do differently? It dawns on you that you are creating your children’s memories – and the urge to make Christmas special and meaningful burns brightly.
Getting together with family – sharing food and gifts and time together – feature in most people’s picture. Can we call this ‘honey time’? Time that is sweet and fluid and oh so nourishing.
But it’s not all sweetness and light, is it? It can turn out to be a very stressful time of the year. Getting together with family often opens old wounds and there are so many things happening at this time of year that it can get a bit much: the school year finishes, summer holidays need to be prepared for, office parties, neighbourhood gatherings, Christmas cards to send, baking and gift buying… It can be a time of contradictions.
Here at The Honeyclock, we wish for you some sweet honey time. Relaxed, stress-free, uncomplicated. Some time to connect with your dear ones and nourish yourself. We wish for you a lovely break!
And, if you’re still not quite ready for Christmas or stocked up on your Dr Hauschka or cleaning needs for the three weeks we will be closed, pop in to The Honeyclock this week and see us! Our latest newsletter gives you a brief overview of our shop and some of what we have to offer you this Christmas…

… in all shapes and sizes. Some relate to well known Advent stories ‘The Light in the Lantern’ and ‘Mary’s Little Donkey’, others include their own story, some have a ‘thought’ for each window, some have moving pictures, and some just unfold to reveal a beautiful scene. You’re sure to find one to suit, if you’re quick! See their lovely images on our Christmas page under products.
