The Lady Exile and I wish you a very merry Christmas!

(Good Lord, there's a lot of snow here for December! And I'm not even as far north as you are...)

Merry Christmas. After reading your post about Buckeye Balls it’s nice to finally put a face to such an intelligent poster. I think you’ve pulled my blog-behind out of the fire a few times.

I also want to thank you for solving a very old mystery. As a young lad I was forced, against my will, to eat Sauerkraut every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight. I don’t particularly care for the taste, but threats of bad luck during the upcoming year (and a large drink standing by) were enough to make me eat. Year after year, however, my taste-bud sacrifice didn’t seem to lead to any extra luck.

Yesterday I asked my mom about the good old days. It seems she forgot one major Sauerkraut ingredient: a shiny new dime! I yelled at her for making me suffer needlessly (and then we had a good laugh)!

Have a great Holiday Season.

Belated Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends. I hope everyone had a holiday filled with happiness and fun. We spent the last few days taking care of my mom (who has Alzheimers) while my sister and brother-in-law went on a much needed vacation (she lives with them). It was a bittersweet holiday. Mom slept a lot and wasn't too alert, but we went through the motions and tried to keep everything festive. We came home exhausted, mentally and physically.

Exile, we've had 25 inches of snow in the Flint area so far this year, which is about half of our annual total. The warm weather helped melt most of it the last few days so we're ready to start over again! Ahh...don't you just love Michigan?

Jamie, check back in a few days. I'm putting up a post about a couple of other Pennsylvania traditions for the New Year! These are easy ones and don't involve eating anything you can't stomach!
