We gotta have our popcorn bucket every year even though no one eats the caramel corn.

21 pts total 798

ElizaMarie I used to buy one for my grandpa every year. He loves them. He didn't want us to ever get him Christmas presents (he didn't want “things“. He was a very practical man and did that whole “I don't need anything“ type of thing. So every year I bought him popcorn, new slippers and chocolate. I lost him last year in October (at the age of 98). Maybe I will buy myself some popcorn this year. I could modify this as a new type of tradition.

ElizaMarie Thanks for letting me share that with you. Sorry for the long winded comment. 20h
mdm139 @ElizaMarie thanks for sharing. My mom always sent my gramma popcorn from the Popcorn Factory, multiple times a year for the last seven years. Last Christmas my gramma finally confessed she hates popcorn! We lost her this past spring and little reminders during the holidays are tough. I hope you find comfort in your modified tradition. I raise a bowl of popcorn in memory of your grampa. Cheers, grampa! 20h

ElizaMarie Last year (our first Christmas without him was rough) every time I saw those tins. But this year it doesn‘t make me feel so sad but remember more happy thoughts about them. 20h
ElizaMarie Also I think it‘s super funny that your grandma didn‘t like popcorn but you guys were gifting her with it for years! 20h
marleed I love this thread. We have a local popcorn shop called Topsy‘s and their Christmas tins are kind of a big deal. It wasn‘t until I moved away for a while that I realized Topsy‘s was local to Kansas City, and somehow that‘s made the popcorn an even bigger thing for us. It‘s funny how traditions start. 18h
mdm139 @marleed I didn‘t realize how many traditions we had until the tradition prompt. We have a local gourmet popcorn called Popcorn Girl. They make better movie theater popcorn than the movie theaters. They also have popcorn tins and I will probably get one too to support their small business. And I loved Topsys when I lived in Kansas. Those were our tins growing up. And I still buy tins, just from local stores. 18h
mdm139 @marleed Topsy‘s probably is the reason why I get tins. And we use the popcorn tins to store cookie tins in and sometimes ornaments 18h
marleed Oh my gosh, then you know about that Plaza Lights Tin! When I moved to SAn Antonio and came back to KC for Christmas I realized I had not seen any Topsy‘s billboards. A couple conversations, a google search and the fun began! I hope Popcorn Girl provides you years of tradition! 18h
mdm139 @marleed. Oh yes and we went to the plaza lights every year. We would try to go on opening night but sometimes life got in the way and we went a different night. And we went to the park in Topeka that you drive thru the lights. 17h

I would use this book in my classroom because it is a great laugh for the kids. It is a funny read-aloud and will make the class laugh, feel calm, and not stress. It is a good book to read at the end of the day before they go home.

This is an award-winning book. This book is about how dragons love tacos and if you want dragons at your party, you must have tacos! But if they eat a spicy taco, it is bad! This book is super cute and funny and perfectly depicts an award-winning children's book because of it's funny, perfect tale of a good snack and funny animals!

britt_brooke My sons love this one! 1w

1. TACOS!!! 🌮 🌮 🌮

2. Absolutely, I've never met a book in any form that I didn't love.

3. Cool weather and windy days with bright blue skies.

4. None. Though my husband did bake cinnamon rolls and I ate more than none of those, much more than none.

5. Blue mostly, but also sometimes grey and green and brown and orange.
