Each year I throw a big, blow-out, holiday party with the focus on handmade desserts (I mostly eat food to justify eating dessert).
This years party had:
Cake Pops shaped like Santa Hats and Christmas balls (from the Bakerella Cookbook)
Apple Pie on a stick (not as hard as you’d think to make),
the famous Kalhua Balls from my sister Paula (whose Christmas party is like mine on steroids),
Chocolate Peppermint Patty cookies,
Cherry Hand Pies,
and, of course,
my mom’s awesome sugar cookies! (my mom used to make, literally hundreds of these each year and the smell of them baking is instant Christmas to me).
My friend Alisa managed to snap a couple of pics with her camera phone before it all went away (I of course forgot to take pictures).
And each year the guests all get the annual Holiday Trivia Quiz which is, mostly, based on my frightening knowledge of all the Christmas Specials of my childhood. It started out as a lark and now the guests all expect it.
I thought maybe some of you might enjoy the challenge or want to use it for your own Holiday Gathering.
Here are some sample questions and, if you’d like you can download the whole thing (and the answer key) below:
1) Which reindeer had to undergo years of therapy after being left out of Twas The Night Before Christmas
11) If your true love had just dumped several girls with their pet cows on you what thoughtful gift could you next expect?
A) A small, all-girl ballet company
B) Beyonce’s greatest desire
C) Some fouls with awesome cell service
D) Some adult, female, chickens who like wine, cheese and all thing Jerry Lewis.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday Season!
