Eggnog is such a festive treat. During the holiday season, I love to eat eggnog flavored treats, drink it mixed with Sprite, and see it on the shelves in the grocery stores.

This is the time of year that my family starts divvying out names for gifts that we are going to buy for our siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles, etc. We draw names for my immediate and extended family. Instead of getting hundreds of gifts each year, we only give a few.
