Rum punch, egg nog and Boxing Day!

Talkin' Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast hopes that all of our listeners had a great Christmas Day and are enjoying the holidays to the max. Show hosts Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connors, through the magic of radio, spent Christmas morning with their listeners as they celebrated the 50th show. Besides enjoying a little eggnog (with just a hint of rum) and some Christmas cookies, 'Radio Man' and 'History Lady' covered a lot of ground, including their thoughts on what all of the tourism promotional organizations along the Treasure Coast would want to find under the tree this year. Did anyone find a lump of coal in their stocking? Listen to the show to find out.

Have you been a resident of the Treasure Cost long enough to remember the one-of-a-kind Christmas parties Janet Hutchinson threw at the Elliott Museum? Well if you ever attended one, you will remember Ms. Hutchinson's famous Christmas Punch. Robin shared the famous recipe with our listeners and talked about the 'measuring device' Ms. Hutchinson used to ensure proportions were exact. Wonder if any of our listeners have the same device in their kitchens?

In the British Commonwealth, Boxing Day is a celebrated holiday. Most of our listeners have heard of Boxing Day but don't know the origin of the tradition. Gary shared a number of possible origins, but is still wondering how Junkanoo got involved.

Last, but certainly not least, Robin and Gary took a look back at some of the shows and topics covered over the past months. Show listeners are certain to agree that possible tourism topics are indeed endless! If you missed Talkin' Tourism Christmas Day, the show is available here.

Gary, Robin and the entire support crew of Talkin' Tourism on Florida's Treasure Coast wish you and your family a healthy and prosperours New Year.

NOTE:  Talkin' Tourism takes a break this coming week; returning to the air on Friday, January 8, 2010.
