Almost every family has certain members that just don't get along. Of course we all try to make the best of things at the holidays, but it's not always easy. In fact, a new survey from Travelocity found 48% of Americans admitting that they've used an excuse to get away early on Thanksgiving!
We all have them, usually we're related to them: people that are nearly impossible to buy Christmas presents for. I don't know this for a fact, but I would bet one of the most common reason people dread Christmas shopping is the anxiety involved in finding gifts for hard-to-buy-for people. What do you do? Here are a few ideas that might help.
I remember hearing a long time ago that the best way to tell the locals from the tourists at Hannibal's Autumn Historic Follklife Festival is that the tourists are there for the crafts, and the locals are there for the food.
Power outages are a major concern when severe weather strikes. Extended periods without power - such as the outage many Hannibal residents faced last May after straight-line winds damaged much of the city - can lead to contamination of food stored in refrigerators and freezers. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, " Power outages from weather emergencies compromise the safety of stored food, but consumers can take steps to reduce food waste and the risk of food-borne illness."
If you were to ask several attendees of the Autumn Historic Folklife Festival about their favorite part of the annual event in downtown Hannibal, there's a very good likelihood that you would hear "food" as an answer fairly often. Here's a rundown of who's serving what during the 2013 Folklife Festival, according to the Hannibal Arts Council.
We're all entitled to our own opinions, but food is arguably the best part of any holiday. See, eating our way through this sort of celebration is an automatic win-win-- we're happy, our stomach's are happy, everyone's happy.
Not that I need an excuse to grill (or to eat), but soon Memorial Day will be here. I am not sure if I will host a barbecue at my house this Memorial Day weekend. I won't know that until the middle of May. If I don't host, I will at least help with the planning and execution of a barbecue at my in-laws.
Got any Memorial Day plans? Maybe you’re heading to a parade and dressing up in those American flag shorts (guilty). Or perhaps heading to the public pool to kick off swimming season is more your style. Whatever you do, there’s one Memorial Day staple that all Americans must experience on Monday— the BBQ.
