The Nog is On
I have decided to try my hand at holiday making and am declaring today (November 6th) as "Beginning of Official Nog Season Day." This is due to the fact that today was the day when I entered my friendly neighborhood Stewart's Shop and was confronted with the beautiful vision that is a shelf in the cold case fully loaded with golden and silver cartons of Nog, sweet, sweet, delicious nog. Not that you can't get nog at Stewart's year round (in little plastic bottles), but to see the whole shelf display is truly a harbinger of the joyous holidays to come.
If you haven't noticed, I am afflicted with a horrible Egg Nog addiction (read through my numerous posts on the subject). So the occasion of the wholesale reappearance of the golden nectar on store shelves seems to me to warrant celebration. November 6th seems to be an arbitrarily wonderful day to chose as the official "Coming of the Nog" occasion.
Anyhow, happy Nog Day! I, for one, will be celebrating with hearty swigs from the carton. I am also going to do a side by side comparison of the high test nog and the "light."
