Sweet art

Twenty-eight-year-old Japanese candymaker Shinri Tezuka specializes in the traditional art of amezaiku, the cutting, pulling, and bending of molten sugar into elaborate lollipops. Amezaiku originated in the 8th Century, and Shinri is one of the last of the candy artisans. He sells his amazing amezaiku at his Tokyo candy store, Asakusa Amezaiku Ameshin. Here are some of his creations. Are they too beautiful to eat? Probably not, since they taste as good as they look.

Here’s Shinri Tezuka in action. Watch the magic happen!

A new war on Christmas

George from Portland, OR writes:

Dear T,

I have a new holiday story to tell. It’s Rude-olph, the Rudest Reindeer. Forget about Rudolph. Rude-olph could chew him up for breakfast and spit him out at lunch. He’ll tell you you’re really smart…on Opposites Day. P.S. It’s only ten dollars. How many can I put you down for?

T replies:

Hey, George! The holidays are not a time for disrespect and bad manners. And charging ten dollars for this story is nine dollars too many. All I can say is that I hope Rude-olph learns to overcome his rudeness and is able to join in the festivities in a considerate and neighborly manner.

Holiday hunt

It’s time to look high and low for special treats to delight loved ones this holiday season. It doesn’t matter whether you buy your gifts or make them yourself. The wrapping is the most important part!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Animals in balloon form have long helped humans celebrate all good things on this day, proudly taking part in Macy’s famous parade. Take a look at these swelled-up celebrants of yore.

The elevated elephant.

The blimpy bobcat.

The inflated insect.

The dirigible dachshund.

The helium hippo.

And the star of the show, year after year. The towering turkey!

Likewise, let our spirits soar today, and let us be grateful for the good things we have, for family and friends, for warm hospitality, and for good company. Happy Thanksgiving!
