    Probably, I'm from the US though, and it's more something that my family does, I don't know really when or why we started drinking it on New Years.

    I actually had an awesome picture that I edited of a Nicotine patch box, for a response, but my graphics editor crashed before i could save it.

    Yep, but we usually just stay in and watch movies until the new year.
    One of my family's traditions is to make a hot cup of wassail.
    (Wassail is a traditional Winter Solstice beverage originating in Europe, which eventually found it's way into the Christmas celebration)
    There are many ways to make wassail, the original one was quite nasty, as you soaked toasted bread in it.
    Well, for all fairness I never tried the original, so it might have been better than I imagined, but the kind we make is pretty simple, in fact it's basically just hot apple cider with a few additional ingredients.
    Here is my recipe, virtually everything is optional.
    1. At least 3 servings of Apple juice heated to a simmer, or until it starts to steam, but don't boil it.
    2. Christmas spices of choice: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves (or Allspice); optional spices: Mace, Ginger. (note: easy on the cloves and nutmeg, they can be quite potent.)
    3. Add sugar to taste, preferably a mixture of brown and white (or cane) sugars, and a pinch of salt.
    4. Once it's hot, turn off the burner and add about a cup of Orange juice to the mix (make sure that the apple juice is hot enough, and that the stove is off, you don't want the orange juice to cook, but you also want the Wassail to stay hot after adding it).
    From here is where the recipe varies.
    Option 1. While cooking, add a Tea bag for about 60 seconds to add additional flavor (Russian tea is hot apple cider and tea, this is a variation based on it, but only do this if the tea your using has a complimentary flavor, otherwise it may have a negative affect on the beverage).
    Option 2. Add chunks of Pineapple or it's juice to the drink while it cooks, in some recipes they use pineapple instead of apple, I prefer either apple or a mixture of the two, sometimes I like to add Dried Apricots, Ginger or Mango.
    Option 3. A slight squeeze of Lemon juice can add a lot to the flavor.
    Option 4. Sometimes I add a bit of Alcohol, preferably Rum or Whiskey, but I've also used Gin and Vodka, I suggest using moderate amounts, as too much of it will drown out the other flavors.

    That cake looks delicious!

    Unfortunately, I don't think they make transdermal patches for RE:Zero addiction. ^^;

    It's not as much about a type of post being "forbidden" as it is about wanting the discussion to just move on to other topics other than the one they were wrangling over at the time. The issue was the not letting go - and after it going on for two pages I stepped in to encourage them to let go and move on. That was all.

    She's from one of my story concepts, I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to make it into a game yet. If I do, it will probably be with one of the RPG Makers, or a visual novel engine.
    Thanks, I'll pass the message onto her.
