Truthful Tuesday — Deprived Childhood

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…

What was your favorite holiday treat as a child?

Well Frank, if you asked me about non-holiday specific treats, I could give you a nice, long list. But believe it or not — and since this is Truthful Tuesday, you ought to believe it — I can’t remember a favorite treat specifically related to a holiday. Ours was not a big dessert family and although I can think of a number of desserts that I used to like, from cookies to cakes to pies, etc., none was associated with a particular holiday.

So, sorry, Frank, but my truthful answer is that I did not have a favorite holiday treat. I must have lived a deprived childhood. I’ll try to do better next Tuesday.

    I agree.  Everything was a treat to me as a child.

    Does treat mean dessert? When I read it, I thought it might be going to a favourite park or playing a favourite board game or … I dunno… a trip to Disney Land? If it does mean something sweet, we didn’t have many lollies in our house but sometimes we’d get a few as Christmas stocking stuffers. I remember one summer (which is Christmas time here), I got given all the CS Lewis books in a box set. I just remember lying in the living room reading about Narnia and eating these mint leaf lollies Mum had found somewhere. That’s pretty blissful, looking back as an adult.

      For me it was one summer I read The Lord of the Rings and had a homemade chocolate milkshake every day!

      Good point. I interpreted “treat” to be dessert, but maybe I took too narrow of a focus. Going to the park to see fireworks for the Fourth of July or getting to stay up late on New Years Eve were treats, too.

    I think your parents were setting up good example for you to follow, no sugary treats.

    Treats at the time or treats now? I didn’t appreciate my time at my grandparents cabin as much as I should have… looking back those were some great times even though I had to share the outhouse with bugs!
