Christmas! Eat Drink & Be Merry! Holiday Fare of Film & Song! “Let it Snow!” Popcorn Garland

“Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we’ve got no place to go

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!!

Oh, it doesn’t show signs of stopping

And I’ve brought some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”


Popcorn Garland


1 bag of microwave low fat popcorn popped

Fresh whole cranberries

Needle and thread



Carefully remove the bag from the oven and open it to let the steam escape (an adults job). Pour popcorn into a large bowl and let cool. Open a bag of fresh cranberries and pour into separate bowl.

Thread a needle with about 36 inches of white or colored thread doubled to make the thread strong and a workable 18 inches long. Tie a knot at the end.

Choose a pattern to repeat, for example, two pieces of popcorn followed by a cranberry or 2 or 3. String several short garlands, then hang them on the tree.

    I remember doing this on Christmas Eve and Day with my patients. It helped them feel a wee bit better doing something when they had to be in the hospital. Thanks for the memories!
