December is the Month for Celebrations- and Not Just Christmas

"It is one of the greatest feelings known to humans, the feeling of being a host, of hosting people, of being the person to whom they come for food and drink and company."

-Anne Lamott

December is the time for hosting festive celebrations. It's a wonderful time for opening your home to loved ones and feeling that great feeling that Anne La Mott refers to. There’s no better way to  reflect on the outgoing year and to get the New Year off to a great start than sharing a wonderful time of feasting with family and friends.

Of course, many of us look forward to digging into our wonderful Christmas Roast Turkey or Prime Ribs feast, whatever is the tradition in your home. But Christmas is not the only opportunity to celebrate and host family and friends in December. In honor of multiculturalism, I'll be offering a few other celebration ideas (along with their great menus) to ponder, over the next several days.

So  tune in over the next several days, and if they're not part of your tradition (yet), perhaps you'll begin some new ones.

Bon Appetit!
