Happy New Year!
Today’s ‘burning’ question is this: have you ever had a hot dog roast on a cold, snowy winter’s day? Perhaps my family has some odd traditions! Every year in mid-December, we head out into the British Columbia mountains to cut Christmas trees with our son and his family. Once we’ve selected just the right trees and loaded them into the back of the 4WD, we find a spot to build a fire and have a winter picnic. We bring thermal mugs of coffee and/or hot chocolate as well. This year it was so cold (-12ºC, which is about 10ºF) we decided we should bring a thermos of hot soup next year!
What’s the craziest picnic you’ve been on? Or… what’s one of your family traditions others might find odd?
