I wonder if everyone loves pie? I know I do not like some pies but put a Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie on the table and I will now be interested. My biggest problem is I am not much of a cook and do not know how to make a Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie. It is strange that even though I have cookbooks I never get around to looking this recipe up. However, when I accidentally came across it on the internet I now feel like I have a chance to make it. At Family.go.com I found not only found the recipe but a video directions on how to make it. Maybe this was my problem, I like having a visual how-to rather then just a recipe. If you feel the same way check out the video on how to make it or maybe find a video on how to make you favorite pie. By the way, what is your favorite pie?

In today's busy world we seem to forget what is important. Take this time to reflect that we are not the only people around and that each community has different traditions. In the melting pot of America the idea that anyone celebrates differently can slip our minds. However, the celebration of Christmas is truly a world wide experience. It is not just a fairy tale based on fiction that Santa circles the Earth in one night. It comes from the idea that we all have a tradition for celebrating the Christmas season. Check out this web-site "Christmas Traditions Around the World" that gives a link to the traditions of the world. It also has a link that lets you see how other nations say Merry Christmas as well. Enjoy your Christmas and keep you heart open to all the people of the world who in their own ways will be celebrating with you.
