25 Days of Blogging- Day9: Christmas

Hi Friends!

Today's festival is Christmas.  This holiday is celebrated on the 25th day of December (on the Gregorian calendar) as a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.  Typical traditions include a Christmas dinner with family, decorating a pine tree in your home, hanging lights, and gift giving.

There are many varieties of traditions with this holiday, but it seems as though the most common one is to spend time with family.

Here is a delicious, and traditional Christmas drink (made vegan):  EggNog!  There is no picture for this one as it is a recipe of my own and I have yet to take a picture of it...

1 cup nuts (pecans work best)
4 cups water (may need more or less depending on how thick you'd like it)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste

1. In a high speed blender, pulse the pecans until they've turned into powder.
2. Add the water, syrup, and spices, blending well until smooth and creamy
