There is one Christmas tradition I haven't talked about yet. We have a garland that goes around our kitchen with twinkling lights on it. There's something special we like to do with it. We hang candy canes all on it. We buy like a dozen packages of candy canes with different flavors and hung them all around it. We don't put the candy canes on our Christmas trees, just the garland, because it's a way so that little kids won't sneak into them without asking.
On special occasions, like a Christmas Party, before a group of people leave, we let them have a candy cane off the garland to eat or to take home with them. Candy canes are like the sweetest treat around this time of the year. We use the garland for candy canes to make it special. And putting candy canes on it is a better way so that they won't fall and break.
Lots of the kids love a lot of different flavors. They mostly like Gobstoppers, Starbursts, Sweettart, Cherry, and Blueberry. They sometimes, like Peppermint and Hershey Mint. I kind of like lots of flavors, but I'd better be careful with sugar for the holiday. I wish there were candy canes that were healthy for everyone, but I'm afraid that's not going to happen.
***NOTE FROM MOM***
Last night we were out late and I went to bed without putting up a post. The Dog Walker has decided he is going to bail me out every time I don't put something up. And he's going to choose the subject matter too. When I asked him about it he just said, "It's OK, Mom, I made it sound like you."
Pretty sweet, huh?
