This episode is for all of you who love the Christmas season – the traditions, the decorations, the nostalgia and the baking. It’s also for those who have softly cried on Christmas, because the traditions, the decorations, the nostalgia and the baking have pushed you over the edge. We understand, we’ve been there. Here you will find solace, comfort, and a primer from Vicki Grant – a mother, writer and Christmas Guru – on how to avoid those inevitable tears. So cozy up with a blanket, wrap yourself in Jenn Grant’s Christmas album that’s sprinkled throughout the episode, and breathe. All will be merry and bright, I promise.
In this episode we discuss:

Vicki says a Christmas party isn’t a Christmas party without Grease Babies. I wrote about them here. As for the recipe, here’s the gist: begin with white bread, crusts cut off. Add a teaspoon of undiluted Campbell’s Mushroom Soup to each slice and spread edge to edge. Roll slice and wrap with bacon. Bake until crispy but still gooey on the inside. They’ll be gone in seconds.
