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



Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid



Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.
- Handel H. Brown



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



3 Day Coconut Cake Recipe

Make at LEAST 3 - 4 days BEFORE you plan to eat.

The night before you begin to prepare cake, blend together sour cream, coconut (thawed and drained) and sugar. Reserve 1 cup.

Ingredients:
1 pkg. White cake mix
16 oz. sour cream
12 oz. frozen coconut (thawed)
1 1/2 cup Cool Whip
1 cup sugar

Directions:

Step 1:
Prepare cake mix as per instructions. Let cool. Split layers in half to end up with 4 layers.

Step 2:
Spread all but reserved 1 cup of sour cream/coconut/sugar mixture between layers.

Step 3:
Mix Cool Whip together with reserved 1 cup sour cream/coconut/sugar mixture. Frost cake with this mixture. Cover with cake plate cover to keep moist and fresh. Keep refrigerated. Do not eat for THREE DAYS. The longer it sits, the better it is.

Note: KEEP OUT OF SIGHT AND OUT OF MIND, to guarantee the cake will age for the correct amount of time.
