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 snow flies;
The fawn dreams
With wide brown eyes.
