For Life

Greetings! We hope you've been enjoying our countdown to Christmas, and we hope you've been celebrating in other ways as well: by attending a Christmas party or two, a concert of carols, or one of the many holiday performances of the Nutcracker Ballet or Beethoven's 9th.

Of course, the holidays also mean lots of great food ... which brings us to this week's theme. This next set of WordMasters should serve both to whet your appetite for all those great holiday treats and to gently remind you of the downside of overindulging in the Christmas spirit!
