Food Blogging: Thanksgiving vs Christmas

Indeed, there are a lot of strict food bloggers who do not accept Christmas around Thanksgiving. They don’t consider pumpkin and apple recipes in December either.

Like I said, they do like the rules. The rule #57 for all food bloggers says: You shouldn’t post pumpkin recipes in December. Moreover, the rule #57.1 adds no one should make pumpkin Christmas recipes because there’s no such a thing like a pumpkin Christmas recipe. As we all know, the rule #89 says Christmas recipes aren’t welcome before Thanksgiving. There’s only one exception to this rule – a pumpkin pie with a peppermint ribbon. I’ve got a feeling no one has attempted this recipe. Because it sounds hideous.

Simple like that.

Pumpkin Thanksgiving…Christmas Recipes

However, we don’t always follow the rules. Let’s say, I don’t start making pumpkin recipes until October, but I don’t mind posting some in December. I believe these Pumpkin Cannolis could be a nice Christmas treat. If you disagree with this statement…well I’ll need to send a bunch of these to you, and hopefully, you’ll change your mind.

Also, I normally don’t get any Christmas recipes before December. Indeed, I don’t normally start Christmas baking until the end of November, but this year I might have started earlier. Like 2 or 3 weeks ago.

If you asked me to make and share the recipe for eggnog in November last year, I would probably ridicule you. Well, I’m a nice person, and I wouldn’t do this. I would just refer to the rule#89.

But this doesn’t count when it comes to this Spiced Pumpkin Eggnog. Why? Don’t you remember the rule #140.7.1?! Common! It says that being a primarily Christmas drink, Spiced Pumpkin Eggnog is acceptable to be shared around Thanksgiving.

Okay. I fooled you. There’s no rule #140.7.1. I just made it up!

Spiced Pumpkin Eggnog

But I’m not joking when I say this Spiced Pumpkin Eggnog is a seriously delicious festive treat!

I opted for the recipe which doesn’t deal with raw eggs. Sure, I incorporated real pumpkin puree too. And loads of pumpkin pie spice. Because what kind of Christmas eggnog pretending to be a Thanksgiving drink could be imagined without pumpkin pie spice?

The only one thing I’d like to mention that this Spiced Pumpkin Eggnog turned out a little too thick for my taste. I would recommend you to fully substitute cream for milk.

And don’t forget to add a good splash of brandy or rum or whatever you like (Personally, I think brandy works the best here). Because you know what. What kind of eggnog could go without a little of alcohol?

Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m really glad you’re breaking the rules here, Ben…because this pumpkin eggnog sounds amazing! It really is an excellent combination of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I somehow avoided breaking into the eggnog over the Thanksgiving break, but I’m not sure how much long I will be able to hold out…especially now that I’ve seen this pumpkin version. Do you deliver? :-)
