Hi everyone! So. Where did the days go? I wake up and it’s December!
Are you done with your Christmas shopping? I thought I was early this year, having accomplished 2/3 of my Christmas list by November. And then I stalled. So here I am, two weeks before Christmas, with the rest of the list still unfinished. Bummer.
As for the Christmas menu, my side of the family usually has one big Christmas Eve dinner. I leave most of the planning to my able sisters – thank God for them. Each of us get assignments. This year I’d be lucky if I get assigned the dessert.
Why? Because Red Ribbon has created a better, chocolatier Black Forest Cake. The all-time favorite now has more chocolate shavings, creamier chocolate filling, and chocolatier cake. It’s going to be heaven for chocolate lovers like me. The Red Ribbon Black Forest Cake will make the Noche Buena spread even more delightful.
Red Ribbon has really gotten into the Christmas Spirit this year, making the season all about giving. Aside from giving us a better Black Forest cake, Red Ribbon offers free Christmas e-cards on its website. The e-cards are free to download from the Red Ribbon website, so you can send your heart-warming greetings to family and friends.
For the kids, Red Ribbon created an animated short story – A Red Ribbon Tale: Si Emman at ang Chocolate Forest. Let the kids watch it on YouTube, so they will always remember the real spirit of Christmas – it’s in giving and not just receiving. It’s cliche, I know. But kids today need to re-learn the value of giving, especially when commercialism and marketing have made Christmas all about getting gifts!
This could be my first and last blog post for the Christmas season. So let me be the first to wish you –
Have an abundant, happy Christmas. May it be a time of love and peace with your family and friends.
And don’t forget to get a bite of the new Black Forest Cake!
