Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Merry Christmas Eve!

A toast to the holidays is here so bring on the good cheer! Eggnog (or egg nog) is a sweet, dairy drink with cream, milk and often rum, brandy or whiskey. Eggnog is popular in the US and Canada, though less so in Europe and the rest of the world. Eggnog Day falls on Christmas Eve and encourages you to make your own to celebrate the festive period!

December 24 is...

Eggnog is a seasonal holiday drink. It appears just before Thanksgiving, and is enjoyed by many at the Thanksgiving meal. Consumption then takes a break until the December holidays are in full swing. Consumption of eggnog peaks on Christmas Eve. By the New Year, it is no longer available in stores. If you want eggnog after New Year’s, you will likely have to make it yourself.
