New Year’s Eve

After I got home from the bluegrass concert/CD release party, SuperDad heated up a pan of brandy, dropped in some raisins and almonds, and lit it on fire. Voilà!

The name of this victorian-era game is SNAPDRAGON. Technically, one should use raisins for the beginners and currants for a greater challenge.

I think I just blew the “normal family” status.

  1. Nah!
    Yesterday, we celebrated my sister’s birthday with Schnapps… In the civilised world that is not a way to treat good vodka!

  2. Since I have raised a family of fire lovers, they would absolutely love this! I enjoyed watching this…really enjoyed hearing all of your happy voices chattering and laughing. I love your very normal family! Happy hump day! XX

  8. Okay, I have no problem with you playing with fire in the house, but what a waste of brandy! 😉

  9. I’m STUNNED. I’m FLABBERGASTED! I admit it! A drinking game that MY kids have never heard of! (I’m SURE it originated as a DRINKING game… until somebody spilled the brandy…) You REALLY encouraged your children to place their unprotected skin IN fire… and videotaped it…??? Yes Dear…. You’ve surely UNDONE the “normal family”… no … wait… I think you’ve JOINED “normal family” status… Oh I’m sO confused…

  10. LOL.. Mother of the year award goes to KCINNOVA who encourages her kidlets to play with fire! I absolutely love it! You’re a hoot.
