Tradition and Humor
The holiday season brings many different family traditions. Whether it be special treats, gifts, or family outings, the holiday season has a way of bringing our families together. A few of our staff shared their traditions and favorite things about the holiday season with their families.
Paula Crouch, Administrative Assistant: Families have their holiday traditions, and we have ours too, but this is mixed with tradition and a bit of humor. Ever since I can remember, my mother made her famous peanut butter balls every Christmas. Some, she would dip in milk chocolate, and some in the white chocolate that was pre-colored with red or green candy coloring. When the time came that this was too much for her to continue doing, I took over because Christmas just wasn’t Christmas without the peanut butter balls.
The first year I made them and set them out, she noticed that I had not used the pre-colored white chocolate and insisted that I had not made them correctly. I tried to explain that the chocolate is the same but she insisted they tasted different. Perhaps this would be because I added a bit more peanut butter or something, but no, it was because of the chocolate! So, as you can imagine, the next year I purchased the pre-colored red and green white chocolate and made my mother very happy.
Guess what, she said they tasted just like hers!
