Boxing Saint Stephen

Not really about boxing, let alone boxing Saint Stephen. I just want to wish my friends who live where today is a holiday a happy Saint Stephen’s Day or a happy Boxing Day, whichever they prefer.

Here’s a post on About Food called What Is Boxing Day and How Did It Get Its Name? It has links to some luscious-looking recipes.

And here’s a post about Saint Stephen’s Day and what that’s all about. Looks kinda creepy to me.

And here’s a song from my very most favorite winter holiday album, The Christmas Revels: In Celebration of the Winter Solstice.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Invent a holiday pursuit that used to be ghastly but no longer is.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I’m glad I still have some smashing holiday memories. Er, was smashing the wrong word?
    Anyway, ALL those great memories were courtesy of my dear Mom, bless her heart. BEST SANTA EVER!

      Ah, your mom was the tops! My mom was just telling me about the year she bought me “something to do with a princess” that was a bit more than she could sensibly afford, and I was absolutely fascinated and crazy about — yes, about the box it came in. ~shaking head~ Kids!
