Weekend Open Thread – Christmas Edition

For those of you who want to discuss anything but politics, this is your thread! Feel free to talk about anything non-political, whether it be where you’re spending Christmas, what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, what you’re cooking for Christmas dinner, movie and/or book recommendations, etc. Let’s keep this thread nice. No snark unless directed at yourself.

I’ll start: I made cranberry muffins because they looked so beautiful on a baker’s Instagram account as well as sounding yummy. And mine would have looked just as beautiful and been yummy if I hadn’t forgotten to add one teeny-tiny ingredient…the cranberries! I blame it on the fact that I was simultaneously listening to the Dumbest. Mystery. Ever. and was so intently rolling my eyes and snorting over the implausible situations in which the characters found themselves that I lost track of where I was in the recipe. But given that they are called cranberry muffins, that’s a pretty weak excuse. But hey, it works for me.

Request: My lovely neighbors dropped off a huge orchid for Christmas. It’s just beautiful. And now I feel this intense pressure to keep it alive. If you know anything about orchid survival, let me know. I’m an avid gardener, but these mysterious beauties are beyond my ken.

Merry Christmas!
