The Captain and I had our annual Christmas Open House on Sunday evening…the 21st of December!
It is always a fun time to meet and greet old friends and new, and share a cup of hot wassail and finger foods.
This year, the Captain decided we would have our local supermarket make up the deli platters and it really gave me more time to prepare and enjoy the fellowship of all our friends and neighbors, who numbered about 65.
One of the first attractions we had set up was the way Santa arrived at our house.
None of this old sleigh and reindeer, but real horse power.
Santa also had a large bag of toys in his sack in the passenger side to be donated to our favorite local charity!
Personally, I think ole Saint Nick needs to have his suit mended…..don’t know if you noticed, but he got a little scorched coming down one of the hot chimneys.
Santa has obviously changed his modus operandi….(MO) because of such hazards to the job.
OR he could of gotten scorched when someone…not naming names here ;)…put a string of Christmas Lights around his neck and let them drape over his hand…and the white fur on his suit got a little “warm”!
OK…I have to confess ….it was me! 🙁
But I digress…again! 😉
If you ever need pretty party platters…check out your local supermarket deli.
They make up some very pretty platters that are really tasty!
Below are the food platters we ordered.
It was all so very good and tasty…and all I had to do was set out chips, make the dips and the Lil Smokies and a big crock pot of wassail!
Did you my dear readers, have a wonderful Christmas Season this year?
