We take the winter solstice seriously in my home. It is the shortest day of the year; and for me, the culmination of the entire Yule season. We herald the gradual increase of daylight hours in the northern hemisphere with our annual family event we’ve named “Krauzstice.” It’s a combination of our family name (Krauz) and the winter solstice.
We had to cancel last year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, we’ve stripped our guest list to just fully-vaccinated, immediate family.
This is just a small sampling of the menu items, consisting of festive finger foods.

We can log in another successful “love-our-life” celebration. Merry Yule and Merry Christmas, from our home to yours!

Feel free to reblog anything I post. I welcome all comments and discussion.
Any day that makes a turn back toward the daylight is worth celebrating.
Oh my goodness, the FOOD! The Yule log looks divine, and then is that a shrimp cocktail tree beside the olive tree? So creative! Thanks for sharing this!!
Thank you. My husband is a great cook. I do not step a foot in his kitchen! Lol! We love our food (and wine)!
Thank you! Wish you were here.
Amazing thanks for sharing! I have to confess I may steal your shrimp tree idea for Christmas Eve. We always have appetizers and light bites. Enjoy!
Thank you! Enjoy your shrimp tree! It’s delicious! Merry Christmas!
Another great blog – food looks delicious – enjoy.
Thank you, Liz! I wish you were here to help us celebrate!
