Can you believe it is already the middle of JUNE?!?! Out with the cold winter days and in with the hot summer patio dates! It has been a super sunny and indeed, a beautiful spring thus far. It feels like summer, with perfect days to have a cold drink in hand or even better, a creamy delicious ice cream! It seems like everyone is enjoying the weather! I definitely have not heard any complaints about the ending of the winter season!  Since everyone is really busy enjoying the weather, unfortunately, it is often a last minute plan to get your Father’s Day gifts organized.

Preparing for Passover is a little different than many holidays. Passover preparation requires an unusual type of household cleaning, making food inconsistent with one’s regular diet and ensuring all of the food is bought and Chamets free! Chamets are forbidden food for the 8 days of Passover as it signifies the abrupt action of the Israelites leaving Egypt; this was an immediate action disallowing time for bread to rise. Chamets are anything food products that contains wheat, rye, barley, spelt and oats.

Halloween sure is a fun holiday. I used to see it as a sort-of candy Christmas! And of course all the fun of dressing up and putting together a costume ahead of time! As adults, we can forgo the festivities because we might be focused on the kids' fun! But Halloween or harvest parties have really started to become more popular, and they’re just for us grown-ups! If you’re not already attending one, why not start one of your own! Everyone can always use a good costume contest -- you really get to see your guests’ creativity (and humour) come out! Here at Nutcracker Sweet, we take these festivities seriously and we’re proud of it -- it’s what we do!
