    Uh… I don’t recall the children in “The Night Before Christmas” sleeping uncomfortably in fright while envisioning sugar plums dancing in their heads.

    Don’t tell that to the Sugar Plumb Fairies. Not all fairies are blood suckers, just a few of their breed.

    You’d be amazed. There have been time when I have had to identify every vegetable in my basket. Teens who have never seen a radish, don’t recognize celery, and marvel at cucumbers. It’s frightening.

    Beni is too cynical for a pre-schooler! C’mon, Beni; we all know that Dill is correct! (Beware the sugar plums tonight, kiddies!)

    Looks like Kevin and Dil are working on the same theme for their drawings, although Dil took it to a whole nuther level.

    I finally went to Wikipedia:
    “A sugar plum is a piece of dragée candy that is made of dried fruits and shaped in a small round or oval shape.12

    “Plum” in the name of this confection does not mean plum in the sense of the fruit of the same name. At one time, “plum” was used to denote any dried fruit. 3 Sugar plums can be made from any combination of dried plums (aka prunes), dried figs, dried apricots, dried dates, and dried cherries. The dried fruit is chopped fine and combined with chopped almonds, honey, and aromatic spices, such as anise seed, fennel seed, caraway seeds, and cardamom. This mixture would then be rolled into balls, often then coated in sugar or shredded coconut."
