Christmas Corner

Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
- Norman Wesley Brooks



Remember: this December, that love weighs more than gold!
- Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon



Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.
- Charles Schulz



Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.

4 green onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cups crumbled cornbread
3 cups soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 pint shucked oysters, drained
1/2 cup oyster liquid from drained oysters

Directions:

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2:
Saute onions and celery in 2 tablespoons of the butter until wilted, not browned.

Step 3:
Combine cornbread and bread crumbs in a large bowl; mix in sauteed onions, salt and pepper, and parsley.

Step 4:
Add beaten eggs and toss more; moisten with the oyster liquid until moist but not soggy. Add the oysters.
