As of today, my sister and I have a new tradition.
Since November 1st is the day Starbucks brings out their non-pumpkin holiday drinks, we've decided that no matter where we are on November 1st, we will find a Starbucks and order an egg nog latte. If we're not physically together on that day, we'll take a phone picture and text it to each other.
This beverage is something we count down the months for and talk about a lot (usually when summer is causing us sweaty grief). Since commercial egg nog is seasonal, our indulgence is seasonal, too. And boy, do we indulge! I had my first one of 2012 this morning, and I'm already thinking about round two.
Do you have a favorite holiday drink?
