I have to take the heads off. Here is some I cooked in Chile last year. No wait that was early this year.

Tom mate my Mum converted from the Catholic faith to Jewish faith to marry my Dad, they then escaped to Wales to bring us up without family pressures.
My Dad lived and died an atheist but he did not want us to miss out on Christmas so we had two the European catholic celebration of fish on Chrimbo eve and the traditional British version on the day.
This year we will spend the eve with my Mum at the care home(its fantastic they bring in a choir) then on the way home we buy fish and chips.Christmas day we visit in the morning (we can stay for the turkey and trimmings lunch but my kid brother finds it difficult) so we are going to a local Indian.We will then return to join in the party they have an elderly magician and games like musical wheel chairs

Sounds like you had some smart parents. It may not have been their intention, but they gave you some very valuable morals.

I had a neighbor that lived upstairs. She loved smelts and would buy about five pounds at a time. The only problem was she couln't stand to gut and behead them. So I did it for her. I have always loved doing the prep work. Even for a neighbor.
