Dear Almanac readers,

We just made an amazing spinach dip, with next weekend's Super Bowl in mind. Whether you're a football fan or not, this food holiday is a great reason to enjoy tasty finger food and comfort food like no other—with spicy wings, cheesy dips, chili, cupcakes, and more.

Sincerely,

Your Almanac Editors

The sleet streams,
The snow flies;
The fawn dreams
With wide brown eyes.

–William Rose Benét (1886–1950)
