Festive Apple Fruit Cake & 5 Puff Pastries
by Mary Canovas
This holiday season and the year 2020 is one we will never forget and always remember. It has changed the lives of all the peoples in the entire world. For many it will mean the untimely loss of loved ones and friends. For others, it was the loss of personal freedom to enjoy a carefree life. We were restricted to living in a different, more solitary way while trying to follow conflicting official guidelines for our own and others´ protection.
This year has also reminded us of the importance of loved ones, true friends, kindness and caring which we had sometimes taken for granted. We will always remember and should never forget how we came together not only for ourselves but for our neighbors´ survival and well-being.
And this is, after all, the true spirit of Christmas.
Here´s wishing you and yours all that´s best and beautiful during these holidays.
My wish for us is that we meet again next year
celebrating an old fashioned Christmas just
like “the ones we used to know”.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah
A Blessed and Wonderful New Year!
