The Christian tradition of the Twelve Days of Christmas (also known as Christmastide and the Twelvetide) begins on Christmas Day and ends on January 5, followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6.
But here at Sonora Grill, we celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas a little differently. Twelve incredible specials, one per day, for the twelve days before Christmas. Which means that Sonora Grill’s Twelve Days of Christmas starts tomorrow!

The easiest way to make Mexican Hot Chocolate is to use Abuelita, which is a brand of chocolate tablets, made by Nestle. Bring 4 cups of milk (not water) to a boil in a saucepan, add the tablet of chocolate, and stir continuously with a whisk or molinillo (a whisk-like wooden stirring spoon) until melted and frothy or creamy. Top with fresh vanilla whipped cream, sprinkle with powdered cinnamon, and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Mexican-style hot chocolate is often prepared for special occasions, like Christmas. Abuelita chocolate tablets can be purchased at most local grocery stores or at any of the Mexican markets. Abuelita is an affectionate word meaning “grandma”.

The 2013 Capitol Christmas Tree was cut down on November 1 in the Colville National Forest in Washington State. It was then loaded onto a double trailer and began it’s 5,000 mile journey to Washington D.C., where it will be displayed on the West Lawn of the Capitol Grounds.
The six-story Engelmann Spruce, known as “The People’s Tree”, rolled into Ogden this afternoon, as part of its 24-city tour:
Business members, veterans, politicians, and students from Ogden Preparatory Academy participated in a special ceremony to honor veterans:
The Capitol Christmas Tree, which drinks 30 gallons of water per day, was available for viewing through Plexiglas windows. Children and adults were invited to sign the vinyl paneling covering the truck:
Colonel Kathryn Kolbe gave histories of local veterans and reminded the audience about those military servicemen and women who are currently serving overseas and won’t be able to be with their families this holiday season.
“Thanks for not being so busy that you couldn’t take a moment and remember,” she added.
