Christmas Corner

Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.
- Lenora Mattingly Weber



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



It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
- William Turner Ellis



Christmas is the time to let your heart do the thinking.

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.
