Recipe for Christmas Joy

1/2 cup Hugs, 4 tsp Kisses, 2 cups Smiles, 4 cups Love, 1/2 cup Peace on Earth, 3 tsp Christmas spirit, 2 cups Goodwill toward Man, 1 sprig Mistletoe, 1 cup Special Holiday Cheer, 1 med size bag of Christmas Snowflakes(the regular kind won’t do)

Mix hugs, kisses, smiles and love until consistent. Blend in holiday cheer, peace on earth, Christmas spirit and goodwill toward man. Use the mixture to fill a large warm heart, where it can be stored for a lifetime,(it never goes bad!). serve as desired under the mistletoe, sprinkled liberally with special Christmas snowflakes. It is especially good when accompanied by Christmas carols and family get-togethers. Serve to one and all.
