Entomology of word “holiday,” like Christmas Holiday. Holiday is a compound stemming from the words holy and day. The word ‘holiday’ first surfaced in the 1500’s replacing the earlier word ‘haliday’ which was recorded before 1200 in the Old English book Ancrene Riwle. Earlier about 950, the word was ‘haligdaeg’ and appeared in the Old English Lindisfarne Gospels. It was a compound of halig (holy) plus daeg (day). Our holiday drinks are traditional and special:
Eggnog – Brandy, homemade eggnog made from a smooth custard
Cranberry-Ginger Mimosa – Brandy, cranberry juice, splash of ginger ale, Topped with champagne
Special spiced apple brandy – Homemade spiced 8 yr aged apple brandy (vanilla bean, orange peels, spices) (suggested it be heated)
