25 Day of Cereal Day 23: Christmas Crunch
It’s winding down guys! The big day is almost here. You spend these last few in the stores and they’re already putting out Valentines day candy. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and Tuesday is the big one. Many of us will be eating tons of food, opening presents, and making lasting memories with the ones we love. Please take time to realize how important all the little things are. The food traditions, the clothes, the drinks, the games, the hugs, the smells. Remember how important this day was to you when you were a kid, and how the anticipation leading up to it meant the world to you. Sure we got presents, but now in our mid 30’s all we can remember is going to our grandparents, the food they served, the scarf grandma wore, my grandpa singing silent night, the 7 minute car ride from our aunts house to our house. My mom making us wear our matching pajamas before she’d make us home made cocoa. We were all just so excited because it was midnight and everybody was up and full of life. My dad tuning in NORAD to get a report on Santa’s whereabouts, letting us know it’s time to get to bed because he’d be coming around our neighborhood soon. These memories are mostly mine, but I’m sure you all have yours too. That’s what Christmas really is all about. The presents were just the cherry on top. Watching the Christmas specials with your family, eating the great food with your family, decorating the tree and the house with your family. It’s about being together and remembering how lucky we all are to have each other.
Man, how in the heck am I gonna turn this into a cereal review? When you’re dealing with Christmas Crunch, you know what I talked about above is a review for the cereal. We grew up with the Captain. It wasn’t until I was in middle school that I became fond of the Crunch Berries, but now I can’t live without them. And sure Christmas Crunch is just Captain Crunch with holiday shaped Crunch Berries, but you wouldn’t buy it unless it was Christmas Crunch. It’s our reminder how good the cereal was and for us to revisit. Just like Christmas is a reminder to us all how good life was, and we should revisit. Make life good again for your loved ones, for strangers on the street, people in need, and take a second to make it good for yourself as well.
Open up a box of Christmas Crunch, pour a bowl and hit it with some milk. Make eating it at 11pm on Christmas Adam a new tradition, a delicious tradition. And make it a reminder to be a good person. Give to that charity, add a dollar to your bill for St. Judes, volunteer at soup kitchens year round when they need it, and never forget those rad years of your life are what makes you who you are today!
I give Christmas Crunch 11 out of 11 Pipers Piping!
