Hey! Looking forward to a new year is like saying you will study right from the beginning of the year, but in the end, you just wait till the exams to come. I just live day by day without expecting much from life. I focus on the next 24 hours and keep going. I think … Read more
I am a fruitcake, but I don't particularly enjoy eating it.
Always! Life throws many curves, it is fun to see where we will end up. This year we have another baby due in the next 5-6 weeks. My husband and I have another trip planned for our anniversary next month. Plus I am getting ready to plan another multistate long trip. Let the fun begin!
I didn't know there was such a thing as a good fruitcake.
I tried one before... It wasn't horrible but I certainly would rather kill my diet with a piece of chocolate or pie. Lol!
Just another day, to me.
I make an awesome fruitcake but the fruit additions take 30 days and alot of daily stirring. Tastes a little boozy and is quite expensive to make taking alot of nuts 18 eggs and a whole bunch of pudding-in-the-mix cake mixes.
Perhaps next year.
I don't like all fruitcake, but I love one made with macadamia nuts and pineapple. That's enough to make me celebrate! (Maybe a little shine is in order, Otis.)
Yes. Every day and year that I'm able to enjoy my loved ones is a gift.
That depends . . . With the current occupant of the oval office does ANYONE really look forward to a another year? . . . Sorry, maybe the 1% do.
I don't know anyone who actually likes fruitcake, so people need to stop sending it as a gift lol
i don't mind fruit cake but its not my fave.
No no no not me!
But I do have a fruit cake cookie recipe that's wonderful!!
Another year? I look forward to another day!
Every day is precious, embrace it and live it!
I look forward to everyday my friend. Now there are moments in some days I wish I didn't have to do (like the blood test i have to do! Pfft! Im not looking forward to the results.) but it don't/won't stop me from looking forward to each day.
Anonther day another dollar??
The bible says Shepherds were watching their flocks by night, well sheep would not be out grazing in December, so yes Christmas was used to covert the pagan holiday saturnalia, or the birth of sol invictus the unconquered sun.
Most celebrations were stemmed out of a dumb notions and made into festivities. An opportunists saw money in it and commercialised it.
When Christ was born, the magic were so incredibly happy that they gave HIM gifts. We carry on in this tradition.
Your problem is most likely the shopping, ECT that has little if any to do with the Christ Child. I agree. Its just a tradition for us Christians, that's all I know.
