To spice up an otherwise ordinary Thursday lunch of leftovers, I added a touch of whimsy, and called it "Christmas Lunch." The kids laughed that we could do anything Christmassy in May, but they happily played along, finding all of the things that looked like Christmas about their lunch.
We added Christmas sprinkles to our applesauce.
Hot chocolate with marshmallows accompanied red and green plates and cups.
On the stereo, I played Christmas music, an album called "Living Voices: Little Drummer Boy" that takes me back to my childhood when Mom would play the LP. Abi, who has never heard American Christmas music, commented, "Mommy, dis musica beyooootiful!"
