The holidays and its booty.

lolitasir just wrote, using a voice that represents many of us I am sure, her dismay over Christmas creeping earlier and earlier during the year.

As a person who traditionally gets depressed over the holiday season, I truly concur.

But, there is one thing that happens in my life around this time every year.

Chocolate. At work, I get lots and lots of chocolate.

The first present, a handsome 7 tier-ed Ghiradelli assortment, has just arrived.

Chocolate season has begun.

Sorry but I have to comment. My first top had a cross in her bedroom, one of those with eye hooks all along each side.

She purchased this around Christmas and when her four year old daughter saw it, decided to decorate it with ornaments within every eye hooks.

It was quite a tree

Oy! This is going kick alive my years-long desire for a traditional Hanukkah bush.

Oy. Chocolate season. As a chocolate lover, I love it. As a dieter, I hate it. My Weight Watchers leader recently talked about how if you look at the holiday season, even if you have lots of parties and family dinners, maybe that's 15 "eating days" out of the whole season - so there's no reason to toss the whole 60 days for 15. But... she wasn't thinking about the dreaded "food sent to the office" which makes EVERY day in December an "eating day."

And yes, I'm another Jew who loves Christmastime, but hates when it starts in late October. I also believe that once Thanksgiving ends, Christmastime starts.

Early Christmas (blech)
Hear, hear! I'll second that. I don't even want to see Christmas until after Thanksgiving. And yet, the day after Halloween, the State House, (which I work across from) put it's Christmas decorations up. They had the tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday, and it seems like everything in downtown Columbus, OH is decorated for Christmas already. Yeesh!

Chocolate, huh? Hm...

I tink I'll hang chocolate truffles from a Chanukah bush?

Delicious and festive!
Nov. 15th, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
Would a visit cheer you up??
Nov. 15th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
It just might...
Nov. 15th, 2007 10:35 pm (UTC)
Well, let's talk and make it happen. I have 'permission' to go to TES as well. :P

Wee Chocolate and Christmas!! But yeah, seriously, can't I enjoy Thanksgiving first??

Mmm...one more week until sweet potato pie! Yes!

This year, I'm not leaving home without some serious earplugs, for I have now become my father (the Grinch) and cannot manage the christmas music playing at every store I enter. Generally I avoid shopping altogether after Thanksgiving.

I think I like your idea of loading up on chocolate

Hrm, somehow I think a little visit to the local chocolatier, confectionery savant in town just moved up on the list for things to do at the end of the month.

A big city will one day seduce this man into leaving town, but for now, we all hoard his delicacies and beg him to make our cakes.

SOOOO is there a particular flavor set that you are fond of in chocolates? Personally I love sweet with a little heat, dark chocolate with chili powder.
