A New Kind of Prayer Ceremony

palm_tree_2Tonight is ‘palm’ night. Not palm as in the palm of hand, nor palm as in a personal digital assistant Tonight we are planning something to take the frigid edge off, and just in case you’re interested, here are the instructions:

  1. Take one household palm tree and set it on the dining room table
  2. Pretend the mounds of snow outside are really dunes of pristine white sand.
  3. Put on and listen to Beach Boys CD
  4. Cut up a coconut
  5. Cut up a pineapple
  6. Drink coconut milk
  7. Make and drink Pina coladas
  8. Eat coconut meat and fresh pineapple
  9. Run sink water and pretend it is ocean waves
  10. Go to Weather.com and check the weather for St. Croix
  11. Go take a hot and steamy shower
  12. Give up snow for Lent
  13. Pray for spring
