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.
