How do you make your house smell Christmassy?

I put cloves and cinnamon in the oven when I am baking.

What do you do? Maybe there is something new I can also add to make the house smell extra great.

Put a cinnamon stick, a couple of cloves and some orange peels into a pot of water and simmer very gently for a few hours. Keep an eye on it, making sure it just simmers.

LOL rj....

I have a teeny little crockpot, about 2 cup capacity, that was made to simmer potpourri.... I use that with potpourri, a little water, and some scented liquid stuff I get at walmart.

I need to figure out where I put it now.......
