Christmas is over…now what?


…is that day which is notoriously known for RETURNS so I ask, what gift(s) will you be returning this year?  Do you return gifts on the 26th or wait until a later time?  Why do you return gifts?  Incorrect size, color, or the item is just plain hideous? What is the worst gift you have ever received?  Do you have a tradition with gift-giving?  What did you really want this year that you did not receive?  Will you be purchasing it for yourself? Please share it with us.


Have you ever re-gifted before?  If so, what was it?  Have you ever been busted with a re-gift?

Does anyone get those dreaded Holiday Fruit Cakes?  Do you ACTUALLY consume them or use them for a doorstop?  Have you ever found a fruit cake that is pleasing to the taste buds?

When do you normally take down the Christmas decorations?  Is the un-decorating a family event or do you find that everyone is busy on the day you planned the deed?

I would love to hear your Christmas stories.  Please share with us in the comments below.

    Hello. My name is Jim and I like fruitcake.

    Wow! I could feel the guilty weight lifting off my shoulders just admitting that to all of you. I’ve always been a closet fruitcake baker and eater. I love the thick, heavy texture and the multicolored fruits. I think I can walk a little taller now, and feel just a little prouder.

    Thanks so much for linking to my Japanese Fruitcake recipe over at the Left Wright Brain!

      Hi Jim,

      Thanks for taking the time to share your closet baking habits (and that you actually “like” fruitcake) with us. I can only speak for myself when saying I have never cared for the “traditional” Christmas treat (treat?….yuck); however, I am open to trying variations of the recipe on my search to find one that I like and then I too will be able to claim “I like fruitcake”. Thanks for allowing me to link to your site, giving others an opportunity to try something different as well.
