Merry Christmas with PB and Banana Sandwiches
Hey guys, Merry Christmas.
This year was my first Christmas away from my family. Since I just started working, I haven’t saved enough vacation days to go home, so I decided to make the most of my Christmas here in New York with my best friend.
I can’t believe how quiet the city gets during Christmas, it was a nice change of pace, but also eerie, like a scene from the day after an apocalypse in a movie.
Going off the theme of, “the day of giving,” my friend and I planned a “Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich Project” to feed as many homeless people we could find on the street. When one actively is on the lookout for homeless people, it’s a lot harder, but nonetheless it was a great success.
Living in New York, with all the crazy diet options, coming up with what type of sandwich to distribute was an amusing conversation:
"Let’s do peanut butter and banana."
"What if people have nut allergies?"
"Then egg and cheese"
"What if they are lactose intolerant"
"Then what about egg and ham"
"What if they are vegetarian"
"…Or gluten allergy"
Hope the rest of you guys have a great holiday.
Merry Christmas form Betsy and Joyce.
