Want to deliciously horrify your guests at this year's Christmas party? Then leave these 'pig in a blanket toadies' out for them to munch down as appetizers. Better yet, throw your voice in a high-pitched squeal whenever they bite into one! Hobbies for the easily amused ...
Have you finished sending out your Christmas cards yet? Do you even send them anymore? It seems the tradition of mailing Christmas cards is another one that is going on to the Yule Log as being out of fashion. I found this out earlier this month as Laura and I were getting ours ready to send out, along with the annual school picture of Justin, to our respective families. When I asked him if he knew of any other families who mailed cards out, he said, "Not really". It's sad, but I think my generation will probably be the last to mail them out on a regular basis. I still have a large number of cards my parents received over the years. Part of the appeal back then, of course, was the Christmas card was often the only time during the year that you would hear from particular family or friends, what with the hectic pace of daily life. With the Internet and instant communication, that has changed for all time. Take a look here at this window to the past with some cute (and creepy!) vintage Christmas cards.
That makes me full just looking at it! See you tomorrow!
