For Fun

KRAMPUS NACHT brings a little horror to the season.  Santa brings the presents; Krampus brings the coal – or so goes one of the legends surrounding this festival.  This horned devil roams the streets tonight handing out sticks and twigs to children to remind them to be good…or else.  The “or else” could be coal for Christmas, having their presents taken away or being eaten – depending on the story.  Kinda gives new meaning to words of the song “you better watch out”.


On Today’s Menu…

You have to travel all the way to Vienna to celebrate NATIONAL SACHER TORTE DAY.  This decadent dessert is made up of layers of chocolate cake that have apricot jam spread between them and then topped off with chocolate icing.  You could make your own, but the original recipe is kept a secret at the only places that serve the original – the Sacher Hotels in Vienna and Salzburg.

1872 – The Mary Celeste, an American vessel, is found under full sail, with all of her provisions intact but no crew.  Captain Benjamin Briggs, his wife and his 2-year-old daughter, along with 8 crewman set sail on November 7th from New York with 1700 barrels of crude alcohol.  The ship was found 9 days and 500 miles away from when the captain made his last entry into his log.  It was still on course.  No one knows what happened to them to this day.
