“I PRETT Y MUCH LOVE EVERY THING ABOUT CHRISTMAS,”
says Daina Casling, a VP legal counsel at RenaissanceRe. Married to
Clive Langley and with two young children aged eight and ;ve, the
busy mom relishes the holiday madness with her close-knit family.
“My mother established a lot of traditions as we were growing up and
a ;rm belief in Santa,” she said. “We have a family Christmas cookie
decorating competition event that has been going on almost as long as
I can remember. ;e kids love it and the adults get just as competitive.
;e winner last year was a bell-shaped cookie that my brother made
into Darth Vader. It’s an hysterical event and de;nitely always one of
the highlights of the holidays.”
When it comes to her own home, Casling likes her décor bright and
colourful. “I went to a wreath decorating workshop with a friend down
in St. George’s a few years ago,” she said. “She le; with a very organic,
natural looking wreath with lots of Bermuda cedar pieces and I le;
with something that was dripping with colourful baubles and rainbow
Lime green and teal ornaments, designed to coordinate with the living room accents, shine
brightly on a perfectly decorated tree in Daina Casling’s living room. Meanwhile the family
room is filled with whimsical Santa decor and a tree crammed with home made ornaments
made by the kids.
