The Holiday Season

One of the strangest parts about going to Mexico for a week during Thanksgiving (yes, it was wonderful!) was coming back to the U.S. to find that the holiday season was upon us. It was strange, like going outside to get the mail and coming back to find a different house waiting for you.

I don't know if it's that or the sense that due to the economy this season will be less jubilant and joyous (code for commercial) than other holiday seasons, but I am getting the sense that we are off to a slow start this year. It could also be because Seattle just had one of the balmier Novembers on record, apparently.

I for one have always loved this time of year. Not that I go in for all the crap that goes along with it, but this is the one time of the year when we can overeat and overdrink with impunity:) Therefore, allow me to kick off the season here at the Wine Wall with a hearty Ho, Ho, Ho. Let's have some fun people. Let's enjoy our friends and family, be thankful, and, yes, let's have a good time and eat lots of stuff that's not good for us.

I am having a hard time getting into the holidays this year. The tree is up and the Menorahs out (we go both ways in our house) but it just feels off.

Plus we had two catering gigs canceled for economic reasons. Ugggh.
