Personal Notes:
We have a crock pot of Wassail going the whole week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Just turn it down overnight or refrigerate and keep adding to it, making sure to take the orange out overnight and add fresh ones when ready to serve again. Keep a bottle of rum or brandy handy, if you have the day off!
