Gay Advent Christmas Countdown

Egg Nog Jello

1 large box of peach Jello (orange is OK)
1 small can of peaches drained and chopped (spiced peaches are best)
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
1 8oz. container of Cool Whip (keep a scoop for garnish)
1 1/2 cup egg nog

Dissolve Jello in 1 cup boiling water. Add about 4 ice cubes and stir till melted.

Refrigerate Jello until it thickens slightly. This does not take long, so keep checking. Put Jello in a mixing bowl and whip on medium while slowly adding the egg nog. Mix well. Fold in Cool Whip, then peaches and nuts. You can mold it or serve in the bowl. Refrigerate till set. Garnish with cool whip and a maraschino cherry. It has a creamy texture and unique flavor.

Lemon Drop Martini

Juice of 3 Lemons (Or Lemon Juice about a shot and a half)
2 Tbsp of Sugar
3 Fresh Mint Leaves
2 Shots of Vodka

Mix the ingredients in a shaker full of ice, shake well and pour into your favorite sugar rimmed Martini Glass.

An unusual Nativity scene is drawing some curious looks from passers by.

The scene features a gay couple, Gary and Joseph, instead of Mary and Joseph, a terrorist as an angel and Lenin, Stalin and Marx as the three wise men.

The scene is built by the Young Conservatives of Texas, who say what they're calling an "ACLU nativity scene" includes positions taken by the American Civil Liberties Union.

"The idea is to bring attention to the ACLU and also to bring attention to the issue of taking down nativity scenes during the christmas season or trying to silence you know, the word Christ and the word Christmas," says Tony McDonald of the Young Conservatives of Texas.

The ACLU disputes the accuracy of the display, but says the conservatives have a First Amendment right to express their opinions any way they chose.

"I think it's fairly festive,'' says ACLU executive director Will Harrell. "We want to make sure they have a right to freely exercise their First Amendment right. But keep inmind, nothing in the First Amendment requires that you be accurate about the information. The First Amendment protects parody as well."
