Welcome the my blog, and thanks for stopping by! This is December 2nd's stop on the Blog Advent Tour, 2008! Hosted by Reading Adventures and The Written World.
I'm going to be honest, I didn't start thinking about what I wanted to post for this until the day before I was up. For one thing, the holiday rush really got to me and I didn't realize how close my day was. I also couldn't decide what to post about.
You see, for me, the Christmas season means a lot of things. It's the season that we all celebrate the birth of Christ; the season I spend hours, days, weeks even, getting ready for; it's the time of year that brings the most families together; it's Winter's time to shine. All of the things I love about joy are packed into this one month; the songs, the snow, the cheer, the frenzy, the smells, the love. How does one summarize the beauty of Christmas in one post?
Well, I can't. It would take numerous posts, and lots of pictures. I just have this one post. So the best I can do is to leave you with something that I think sums up the holiday season fairly well. I've never been one for describing tastes with words. Phrases like: "This pie tastes like a summer afternoon" have never been my way of thinking.
But for me, this drink has always sang the holiday tunes.
Hot Spice Punch
5 Quarts water
4 Cups sugar
6 Lemons, juiced
6 Oranges, juiced
1 Large can pineapple juice
10 Whole cloves
2 Cinnamon sticks
Place water and sugar in large pot. Add spices and bring to a slight boil. Let mixture simmer until the water turns an amber color, then remove all the cloves (you can do this now or later, but it is easier to see them all now). Reduce heat and add the juices. Serve hot and enjoy! :)
