It's becoming a tradition for our friend Andy to read this delightful book aloud to our family at Christmas time. He does a beautiful job reciting the story of the visitation of the Belsnickel in the lilting dialect of his Pennsylvania German ancestry.
Our granddaughter was enthralled. Thanks, Andy.
a page from the book giving a little of the cultural background of this PA German folklore.
Also, our eldest daughter who lives in New Zealand is home visiting for the holidays. She made us a Pavlova, a traditional Kiwi dessert.
What do you think, Rhys?
Can't wait to taste it!
Need we say more?
Here's a link to a recipe AllRecipes for a pav if you'd like to try it. She omitted the coconut.
