Christmas Past with Rye and Bourbon

December 16, 2011

I’m on a mission. With so few days left before Christmas, I have things to do, places to go, and people to see. I have no time to waste, but when I found a relic from my past tucked away in an old Christmas box, I paused to reminisce.


In my hands, I held an envelope with my name on it. Inside was a 3-D Christmas Book given to me by Santa when I went to visit him eons ago. Imagine that!


The book is filled with a variety of Christmas stories and poems by some well-known authors.


It has carols, craft ideas,


 a pop-up Christmas scene,


 and a pair of 3-D glasses.

 Santa is so clever!

There is also a recipe for eggnog included on the last page of the book. It calls for the “best of Rye or Bourbon!” Who knew we were so liberal back then? Including this recipe in a children’s publication today would probably be considered politically and socially incorrect. Hmmm …  

Reminiscing time is up. I have lots to do, and the first thing on my list is to try out that eggnog recipe. A little pick-me-up might be just the ticket to keep me chugging down the right track. Cheers!
