    Christmas, 2015, on Red Hot Pawn

    It's only twenty five shopping days until Christmas Day Friday, December 25, 2015. What online virtual gifts do you hope to give to and/or receive from other members of Red Hot Pawn? Remember: St. Nicolas and Santa Claus know which RHP Boys and Girls have been naughty or nice on these public forums during this past year. Comments on your favorite yearend holiday foods and beverages, music and traditions during childhood and now are also welcome.

    Yay, Christmas, yes! What a nice time to spread love. Also, to share
    with our users a friendly reminder. Here we go:

    Association


    Be careful sharing your personal details on RHP with a certain
    someone. Users portraying themselves as a harmless 'lad', white hair
    and all (even with imaginary friends who persist to exist despite the
    medication) are known to fish sensitive data which can then be used
    for passive aggressive rants, nauseating copy pasting, and tasteless
    disclosures to attract attention to themselves. Be afraid of whomever
    invokes the TOS or the supreme ruler role of Russ.

    Not exactly a momentous day. I have had to work on about three of the last five Christmas Days. 'Children's Mass' at 7 am (or, if not, the long 9 pm one the evening before), one gift [usually by shopping for it together] for each of the children but no one else, a bit of sitting around with grand parents holding court, perhaps a jaunt to the next town along to visit the children's uncles, aunts, grand uncles, grand aunts, and the surviving great grandmother.

    It's when you are faced with questions you don't thoroughly enjoy reading that your behaviour falls apart. 😉

    It's the honesty of this biographical reminiscence which ignores the risks of the perils of candor I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

    Thank God our Family agreed to break the capitalistic "gifting spree". Christmas is much more enjoyable that way.

    As children our favorite traditional foods at Nana's house on those blessed occasions of Christmas so long ago included Swedish Meatballs, Pickled Herring, Smelts, Hardtack, Spritz Cookies, Butter Horns and Cardamom Braided Loaves. We politely declined the Lutefisk which was a gelatinous delicacy of the annual transformation by lye bath soaking, aging, rinsing and creaming that poor old Atlantic Ocean Cod. The obvious question raised was why dry them out in the first place? Culinary benefit? An ancestral tradition? Answer known only to parents, uncles and aunts, paternal grandparents and God.
