Well I thought I had something for today, but I either didn't or saved to some unknown point in cyberspace.
For those of us who are working, and who are not teachers, tomorrow is stepping back to the normal workweek, except of course for students. It is still Christmas though and remains Christmas until the 5th of January. Today is the 4th day of Christmas, and if you like, to remind yourself, you could sing the 12 days of Christmas today up to the the fourth day. That is something we do most years until we get to the 12th day. In addition, we keep the Advent wreath on the table and will continue praying and lighting all five candles. For the 12 days of Christmas, we sing "the Light of Christ has come into the World" January 5, we will sing, "Shine Jesus Shine," a great song to bring in Epiphany, and that will be the last night of the Advent, now a Christmas Wreath.
Drive your neighbours crazy, keep your Christmas lights on and your tree up until January 6th. Remember we start Christmas December 25th and celebrate 12 days. Keep telling everone "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Christmas" outside the US.
Kids driving you crazy? Put them to work, leaves to rake, snow to shovel (well not here in La Porte), there is no reason the kids cannot help, and when done, put them to work making Christmas cookies. Go caroling tonight. There is always something to do. Nothing wrong with having Christmas parties for the kids either. Help them be in the mood that we are still celebrating the dear Saviour's birth.
Another recipe for left over turkey:
Chop the turkey into fairly small pieces.
Scramble eggs, and pour into skillet on high. Allow to cook without stirring and flip over. Spread the turkey over half the omelet, and then spread guacamole. Fold over, heat a little longer, flip over and serve.
If you don't know how to make guacamole:
Slice up two avocados.
Mash, and mix in four tablespoons of mayonaise,
Chop fine 1/4 stick of celery.
Chop fine 1 Serrano pepper.
Chop fine 1 tablespoon of Coriander (cilantro)
Chop fine 1 tablespoon of onion.
Mix it all together adding a dash of salt,
Grind about 1 teaspoon of black pepper and mix in.
(if you have left over guacamole, leave the seed in the guacamole to keep it from turning black. Most people add some lemon juice, which is not for flavour, but to keep it from turning black as well. If you make it immediately before eating, there is no need for lemon juice, and in my opinion, it is better without it.
For more American style leave our Serrano and cilantro. For Honduran style, chop in some hard boiled eggs.
