I love Christmas! What a wonderful time of year! --Friends and family getting together to celebrate human consciousness, the arrival of Jesus. What better time to enjoy wine? I say that with a smirk, but the truth is that wine, beer and spirits sell more during this season than the rest of the entire year combined. I had a friend ask me the other day, "Do you think it's tacky to give wine to your kid's teachers?" Maybe she asked the wrong girl because I had to laugh. At our office party today we played one of those gift giving games where each person draws a number, then you pick a gift in order. You are able to either unwrap a new gift, or take something that was previously opened. Among glassware, candles, body washes and other Christmas trinkets there were three bottles of wine, a bottle of Crown Royale and a bottle of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur. Guess what everyone fought over? Not the candles. If wine doesn't suit your taste, then go ahead and get your teacher/attorney/mother-in-law something from Bath and Body Works. I'm sure she'll re-gift that body lotion and head to the wine shop for some real relaxing.
Hey Y'all! Let's eat, drink and have a Merry Christmas!
