Hellidays - When Bad Holidays Happen To Good People

The idea for the Hellidays site actually arose from an awful mishap on my part that caused me to lose the friendship of my best friend. He and his partner invited me to Thanksgiving. The next day, I erroneously sent an email to said friend detailing how awful the dinner was. The turkey was "as dry as sawdust" was one of the highlights. Though I begged forgiveness, we didn't speak for many years and only now have tentatively begun communicating again. It was wrong, bad, horrible and I will never get over it.

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


Unless your friend is a very close one that you regularly cook or share food enthusiasm with, criticism that sharp and specific is pretty rude. There are times when it's best to say nothing or outright lie and say it's great.

Because you said there was a "partner" involved, I'm assuming they are a gay couple. Not to generalize, but certainly gays can be drama queens, and it sounds to me like you overstepped your critical bounds with a overly sensitive gay friend. You clearly offended him or them. You've got to be very tactful when criticizing others offerings of food, especially holiday meals. That may be the only thing they have ever known, dry nasty sWdust turkey. That's how many people cooked their food back in the day, especially pork & fowl. Send them a large double headed dildo and all will be forgiven.
