The Traditional Christmas Donut
Originally uploaded by Ricardipus.
In this part of Eastern Ontario, it is traditional to serve an enormous donut on Christmas Day. It is frosted with white icing to resemble snow, but is otherwise unadorned so as to avoid adulterating the donut with any other decoration. It is also traditional to serve it outdoors, typically on patio furniture, to remind us that what is fun in summer can also be enjoyed in winter.
This shot is just before the whole family tucked in. There's nothing left of it now.
