It’s Christmas, which means we the good authors of Ladies On The Shelf are congregating in our native California, enjoying family and friends and festivities.
“A merry Christmas, Bob!” said Scrooge, with an earnestness that could not be mistaken, as he clapped him on the back. “A merrier Christmas, Bob, my good fellow, than I have given you, for many a year! I’ll raise your salary, and endeavour to assist your struggling family, and we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon, over a Christmas bowl of smoking bishop, Bob!” – A Christmas Carol
Smoking Bishop, as detailed by this lovely writer, is a Victorian punch made with wine and spices and port. It’s warm and tingly and tastes just like Christmas.
Here’s to you, readers, and you, my fellow LOTS bloggers. May your holidays and your new year be filled with love, happiness and literature! Cheers!
