Before turkey, the traditional Christmas meal in England was a pig's head and mustard.


Christmas pudding was originally a soup made with raisins and wine.


Gold chocolate coins commemorate St Nicholas who gave bags of gold coins to the poor.


And lastly not that I recommend trying this, but many parts of the Christmas tree can be eaten, with the needles being a good source of Vitamin C.

A Walk In The Park

 

This week the New York Times ran an article titled ''The Secret to Good Health May Be a Walk in the Park''.a winter walk in the park


Minneapolis-St. Paul is ranked the healthiest urban region in the USA.


Minneapolis has the best overall access for the most people to well equipped and serviced public parks and recreation, so it is not surprising that it is also the healthiest region.


96% of the inhabitants live within a 10 - minute walk of a park.

Keeping active will improve both mental and physical well being.
