By My Merry Christmas Editor Jeff Westover Christmas is full of wonderful and unique traditions. But where did they come from and why do we persist in
perpetuating some of them? It is easy to see why we kiss under the mistletoe, for example. But who came up
with egg nog and why? Just what is wassail? When did caroling begin? Here we explore the why behind the
wonderful traditions of Christmas.
Desserts, appetizers and entrees -- oh my! What would Christmas be without the many flavors of the season? From eggnog to gingerbread we explore the many delicious foods of Christmas in this merry tribute to the tasty part of the season.
