Zach: “I’ve never had plum pudding before.”
Bree: “I’m serving it this year for Christmas. I like to try out new recipes before the actual holiday. That way if the cookbook’s gotten it wrong, I can fix it.”
Zach: “You must really like Christmas. You and Mr. Van De Kamp always have the best decorations on your lawn.”
Bree: “I adore the holidays. I never get depressed if there’s a beautifully decorated tree to look at.”

Even since the summer they have been getting ready. Right now, they are making finishing touches to their plans. They want to take advantage of the influx of spending that occurs in every holiday season. It starts with Halloween. Then it gets bigger at Thanksgiving. Finally, by Christmas day profits are off the roof.

In the same way, we should be preparing for the holidays. Bree is the epitome of preparedness. She tries her recipes months before the actual event. I know many of us have not done that yet. But it is a good time to start now with the holidays fast approaching. So, go and try that plum pudding recipe!
