Decks the Halls with Lots of Holly!
Well, its technically Christmas Eve, as its after Midnight here in this time zone. I figured I would post a BLOG EXCLUSIVE .. I like saying that! LOL I don't really create many captions that aren't for anyone specific. This one came to mind when I saw the picture. Fruitcake has become a Christmas joke nowadays here in America, as people don't seem to know how to make them, and its an acquired taste to be sure. I'm pretty sure the photo is not showing an actual fruitcake, but hey, suspension of disbelief and all that, right? Everyone needs a weird aunt that is probably into the Dark Arts, right? That keeps us on our toes, probably painted fire engine red!
I trust that everyone will have a great holiday season, whether it was spinning a dreidel, airing your grievances around a Festivus pole, calling out the corners at the Winter Solstice, celebrating the arrival of baby Jesus, bowing down the commercial God of Santa Claus, or whatever you do when Kwanzaa arrives. I hope all those you care about have a safe and secure holiday season as well.
I am not sure I'll be posting again before Monday, as Sunday will be a huge travel day with the Mentia Familia visiting most of the "spousal" relatives that live multiple hours away. Not looking forward to the drive up and back, but I do look forward to the Prime Rib. Her family really knows how to celebrate deliciously!
If I do post before then, it might be the entry I posted for last year's Christmas Caption Contest (or was it 2009?) that was relatively tasteless, hence my absolute joy in making it! Depends on how much Egg Nog and Meatballs I consume at the Christmas Eve parties we hit tomorrow evening.
DISCUSSION TOPIC: If you want to leave holiday messages, please go right ahead. As a gift to those who caption, leave a message here, and if you want, I'll give you a photo or two I have saved on my hard drive that I think you might find useful in making a caption. What better than me sliding a hand in your stocking and giving you a gift?!? Just make note in the comment that you want the Christmas Goose!
