This will make your house smell SOOOOOOO "Holiday"!! I have made this for 4 years in a row, at Christmas time. It is neat, because you make everything in a saucepan.........turn on your burner when you want "that wonderful Holiday aroma throughout your house", then you turn of your burner, but leave the pan for whenever you want another whiff....then you just your burner back on. NOTE: ALWAYS make sure there is water in the pan!!!! If the water level gets low, you just add water...I keep mine going all during the Holidays, although I have added a few more spices, according to how strong it still smells, after a week of using. ALso, one year it went moldy!!!! Guess I had been using too long.
