The Grapevine Gazette
December’s festivities were celebrated in ancient times and many of these traditions have survived the test of time and found their way into our present celebratory jargon – Yuletide (’yule monath’) comes from a Norse tradition of cutting and burning a huge tree on December 21st. It was supposed to symbolize the winter solstice, bring good luck and burn throughout the 12 day winter festival, known later as the 12 days of Christmas. And Saint Nicholas was originally designated by the church as the patron saint of children, thieves and pawnbrokers. Now we know where Santa’s “Naughty & Nice” list” came from. So if you’ve made the good list, here are some libations that you can enjoy with friends and family. And as always, enjoy and remember to drink outside the beautifully wrapped Box!
