Did you know there was a day called ‘National Hot Toddy Day?’ That’s right! There most certainly is. If you occasional imbibe an alcohol beverage, why not make this a fun day to celebrate on your own or with friends! 😀
What is a “hot toddy’ you ask? Well, to make a classic hot toddy, you’ll need hot water, whisky (or bourbon or rum), honey, and lemon. A cinnamon stick adds a touch of warmth but is optional. The warm drink is created in a kettle and has been known to be best enjoyed by the fire. Think of classic movies with the snow falling outside. ❄️❄️❄️ If you live in the warmer states, feel free to put snow falling on the television and pretend 😉.

What a perfect day to grab a few Boo-Shaw Bakery Cookies, some friends or family and do some gingerbread decorating. December 12, 2022 is Gingerbread decorating day! Wow!
According to a French legend, gingerbread was brought to Europe in 992 A.D. by the Armenian monk and later saint, Gregory of Nicopolis. By the 13th century, gingerbread had become popular and nuns in Sweden would bake it as an antidote to indigestion. It was in Sweden that painting and decorating gingerbread became popular.
Here at Boo-Shaw Bakery, we’d like to help keep you on your toes and remind you about Daylight Savings Day this Sunday, 11/6! Remember, you will get an extra hour (hopefully of sleep- wink, wink 😉😉) but it will also get darker an hour earlier… This can be a sign each Fall that “Winter is Coming…”
