nothing says "merry christmas" ...

... like a last minute wal-mart gift card decorated with menorahs proclaiming the recipient to have a "happy hanukkah". It might be a slight improvement over the star of david cookies I took to my son's school yesterday because I don't bake... or plan ahead. I so suck.

It could be worse...way worse.
Just think, you could be giving cookies with "Happy Holidays" on them.
Even a menorah is better than that!
It's okay to be broke.
I don't think our Lord and St. Joseph had a fortune, either.

Sorry, I meant "Star of David" cookies...sieve for a memory...and it should be "our Lady and Saint Joseph" but our Lord certainly is included in that...
age does that, you know!

I don't see anything wrong with the Star of David cookies. You make those of us who managed to snag the last package of Christmas M&Ms for OUR kid's party feel so much better about ourselves....

For the last couple of years at home "Santa" was filling the stockings of my siblings with Spam, canned Minnestrone, and "pomadori pelati" (peeled tomatoes).

I had such fun as a teenager.

chialcapers: sounds like the makings of a wonderful soup! (Maybe minus the Spam!)
