I love holiday party foods! Some families have party snacks throughout Christmas Day, while others have “finger foods” to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and the many, many Christmas parties throughout December. What a wonderful time of the year!
I asked a few Facebook and Twitter friends to tell me their favorite holiday appetizers, and I had a wide variety of responses.
They make them for every special family occasion, but the holidays would not be the holidays without Aunt Margie’s banana pudding or my mom’s chocolate pies.
Red Velvet Cake just seems like Christmas, even though we do not typically have that at our family gatherings. Patricia Cummings said she loved Red Velvet Cake with four layers with cream cheese frosting.
And then there’s the candy…
I recently asked Facebook and Twitter friends what foods make the holidays memorable for them? And while an overwhelming majority said turkey and dressing, there were several interesting suggestions for desserts.
Her collection began in the 90s, and over the years, Shirley Dance’s Christmas Village has continually grown.
“Like anything you buy once a year for many years, it doesn’t take long to have a big collection,” Dance said.
Whether it was a special toy or a meaningful tradition, Christmas makes everything special.
We asked a few residents to share some of their favorite holiday memories or traditions and received many fun responses.
Visiting with Shirley Dance today! LOVE her decorations!
