Here's those jingle bells? Dana Mentink here and I just love this month. Twinkly lights, succulent treats, friends and family. My cockles are warmed, I'll tell you! Here at Mentink Manor we’ve got many of those tried and true traditions common in homes all across the U.S., but my children’s favorite is our Christmas Eve pizza tradition. When the girls were little, we decided to start a tradition whereby the cubs would prepare their very own pizza from scratch. While we scurried off to Christmas Eve service, our homemade dough puffed up just like magic! Upon our return, it's time to punch and roll our dough into whatever crazy shape suits our fancy. Then slather on some toppings and slam, bang, into the oven they go. Then the Mentink family settles down to watch a fun Christmas movie while our pizzas bake.
So help yourself to a slice of pepperoni, and turn on your favorite flick, why don't you? As a matter of fact, let'stest your Christmas movie savvy shall we? Here are some quotes from famous Christmas movies. See how many you recognize. Add some of your own for us to guess!
1. His wealth is quite useless to him, really. He doesn’t do any good with it; he doesn’t even make himself comfortable with it.
2. We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.
3. Strange isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?
4. Didn’t I ever tell you about bumbles? Bumbles bounce.
