Holidays can be stressful. From putting up decorations to shopping for the perfect gifts, seeing friends and family, and of course making a wonderful Holiday meal.  It can be a lot.  Why not take a little bit of stress off of your plate with a Christmas meal kit?

Holiday meal kits give you everything you need to create a memorable home-cooked holiday meal without the fuss of planning and shopping.  This year’s meal kits from HelloFresh, Home Chef, Dinnerly, Gobble, and Marley Spoon can serve a family of 6-10 or you can opt for a more intimate dinner for 2 or 4.

    Christmas Fun Food Facts

    christmas-food-fun-facts

    Did you know…

    • Candy Canes were met to keep kids quiet.  Apparently, they were invented in 1670, when the choirmaster of the Cologne Cathedral commissioned candies shaped like a shepherd’s crook so they could be handed out to children attending the church’s crèche scene in order to keep them quiet. They were white then, with stripes added later.
    • Dutch people leave shoes filled with food for St Nicholas’s donkeys, who leave small gifts in return.
    • Animal crackers were first introduced in 1902 around Christmas. The string on the box was originally intended to be used to hang the boxes on Christmas trees.
    • The tradition of putting tangerines in stockings comes from 12th-century French nuns who left socks full of fruits to the poor.
    • Originally, fruit cake was intended to last all year. They were originally baked at the end of the harvest season and saved to be eaten the following year.
    • In Japan, many households eat KFC on Christmas day.
    • In medieval Germany, apples, wafers, and cookies were common Christmas tree ornaments.  As this tradition emerged, children began to notice the disappearance of these edible ornaments. The vanishing of decorations was blamed on Santa and it became a tradition to leave a plate of cookies by the fireplace to keep them warm for Santa’s snack.
    • Gingerbread houses originated in Germany during the sixteenth century and soon became associated with Christmas. The largest gingerbread house on record was erected at Traditions Golf Club in Byran, Texas, in 2013. It required a building permit and covered 40,000 cubic feet.
    • In 1607, the first eggnog made in the United States might have been sipped in Jamestown, according to reports by Captain John Smith. And December is National Eggnog month!  Cheers!

    Happy Holidays!
