ROASTING CHESTNUTS- Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, and folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Is anyone even interested in roasting chestnuts anymore?

Don't think I've ever eaten a chestnut but your description sort of makes them sound like boiled peanuts.
BLECH!!

Good morning Shari! As I was reading your first lines, of course the tune came in my head and I kind of sang along. Am I weird or what? lol

I dont think I have eaten Chestnuts before and I didnt really know what they were good for. Thanks for the info!

Hugs, Jackie
