Well, Christmas is over.  I, for one, had a good Christmas.  I spent Christmas Eve Day at my Mom’s house, mostly baking in the kitchen, eating, and consuming Christmasy drinks, such as Glühwein, Winter Ales, and of course Absinth.  We had a good time, with barbequed steaks for lunch, and Fondue for dinner.  We exchanged presents in the evening and all was jolly.  Christmas morning I got up and went home to recover from the family for a while before I went over to Karen’s family’s house for Christmas Day Dinner.  I also had a wonderful time there with excellent food and losing three games of the 1981 edition of Trivial Pursuit in a row.  After dinner we drove around town to look at the different Christmas light displays.  All in all a very successful weekend.  I even got that KitchenAid knife set I’ve been wanting.  Now I can cut things in style!

It’s back to the mines for a few days of work while looking forward to New Year’s.  I hope you all had a merry Christmas and were able to spend it with loved ones as I did.

I am so glad you used the word presents so your German friends wouldn’t think we were sitting around poisoning each other. Yes is it just too bad we drank all the rum before we could make the rum cake. Maybe next year!

Allow me to laugh real quick at the thought of American Absinthe without Thujone.
