Signs of the season--sausage balls and a lump of coal

Let's get something cleared up from the start--there's the nativity and then there are all those Christmas traditions that really have nothing to do with the nativity.  It seems we do really spend a lot of time on traditions, but traditions can give people a sense of belonging, so I guess that's a good thing, too.  There is supposedly a tradition that a boy or girl who has been bad might receive a lump of coal in his or her stocking.  Darling husband hasn't been all that bad, but I thought it would be a clever idea to wrap a little LED light to look like a lump of coal and put it in his stocking.
What do you think?  Does this look at least a little like a lump of coal?
Another tradition around these parts is cooking sausage balls at Christmas.
Do these look tasty or what!

Hope you're enjoying some traditions this time of year.
And I hope you also have some time to reflect on the nativity.

  1. Yeah it looks sorta lumpy! Better than the presents I wrapped for Sherry though, and she has been good. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours. We don't follow too many traditions anymore, we will even eat out by ourselves in the morrow.
