Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
- Larry Wilde



What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
- Agnes M. Pahro



Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
- Janice Maeditere



Glazed Christmas Ham Recipe

Ingredients:
5-6 lb. fully cooked ham
1/4 cup whole cloves
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. honey mustard sauce


Directions:

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham, cut side down in a large, foil-lined roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham with a knife, in a diamond pattern, then place the whole cloves in the scores, where the lines intersect.

Step 2:
Mix the honey mustard and brown sugar in a small bowl.

Step 3:
Brush some of the glaze over the ham, then cover with foil. Bake for approximately 1 and 1/2 hours at 325 degrees, basting ham every 20 - 30 minutes with the glaze. During the last 5 minutes of baking time, remove the foil and turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze, being careful to watch it closely during this time, to avoid burning the top. Then, remove ham from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
