Merchant House Countdown to Christmas Cheer

We’re so excited about Christmas! This is our fifth Christmas at Merchant House and as always, we take this time to close and celebrate with our family. However, we love the Christmas countdown like everybody else and have our own little things that we do to count it down. Here’s some of them….
