Taste of Christmas

Made a wonderful visit to Secretts for their Taste of Christmas event, which is being held over this weekend in Milford.

Does turkish delight remind you of Christmas?

Turkish Delight 01

Initially, it is not the first thing I think about, when I think of Christmas.

Turkish Delight 02

I suppose the memory of my mum, who loved turkish delight, links  the two together,  as I would regularly make one of my Christmas gifts to her a box of turkish delight.

There is also C.S.Lewis’ book The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe, were the White Witch, who is holds Narnia in winter’s grip but it is never Christmas, on meeting Edmund (a son of Adam) for the first time offers him turkish delight to bribe him into trusting her.

Of course Edmund hasn’t got a clue who she is, and being a greedy child accepts the sweets she is offering him.  In all honesty, I would probably do the same.
