Dear Polly: I've tried your creamy eggnog recipe, and it's very good. But my aunt used to make an eggnog that was scooped up with a spoon - it was very fluffy and thick. Do you know how to make this type of eggnog? - Anne Dear Anne: A fluffy eggnog can be made easily by separating the eggs and folding the beaten egg white and whipped cream into the eggnog. Here's a luscious recipe that is the height of eggnoggy voluptuousness. The proportions are for 16 to 20 half-cup servings, enough for a great party!

It's that special holiday time of year once again, the time when Uncle Dave sometimes has too many eggnogs and tells the heartwarming story of the Christmas Goat. But first Uncle Dave wants to make sure that you have all been good boys and girls who are remembering the true meaning of the holiday season, which is to stimulate the economy. Right now, the economy seems a tad sluggish, as measured by the Index of People Living in Refrigerator Cartons (IPLRC). But Uncle Dave is confident that things will turn around any day now, because Uncle President Bush's economic advisers have been seeing a number of bright spots in the economy.

This is the time of year we consume two foods in vast quantities - cranberries and eggnog. I have a great fondness for cranberries, but I was never a big fan of eggnog until I made my own several years ago. The homemade eggnog was fabulous and tasted nothing like the packaged commercial stuff. Most people know eggnog only through the quart containers found int he dairy section of the supermarket. I have a feeling many people really don't like egnog but that they drink it because it's the season to be jolly and they don't want to be accused of party pooping.

OK, the eggnog is all gone and the noisemakers have been stowed in the closet until they're pulled out to celebrate the arrival of 2008. Sooooo, let's see how you did on The Inquirer Editorial Board's 2006 Year-in-Review Crossword Puzzle. Here is the solution. It's also available online at http://go.philly.com/yearanswers.

Maybe Santa told him he wouldn't be getting his Christmas wish this year or maybe he's a little shy, but Barney seems to need a bit of cheering up during his visit to the Animal Welfare Association's holiday open house in Voorhees last month. Barney, a close friend of the Sikora family of Marlton, refused to say what was the matter. Perhaps a bowl of eggnog would have helped.

Whether you live on the edge and prefer your eggnog homemade, with raw eggs, or play it safe with store-bought nog, this is the time of year to indulge. The only time of year. Forget fruitcake. Eggnog's where it's at. Let's face it, mulled cider is an acquired taste. But eggnog - this is a homey, stick-to-your-ribs comfort brew. A brew with history. As American as Philadelphia. Its pedigree dates to Colonial times, as far as anyone can figure out, and seems to be related to sack-posset, a milk-and-egg beverage (sometimes spiked with rum to keep folks warm in the winter)

Dear Polly: What can be done to prevent orange juice from separating, especially when it has been reconstituted from frozen juice? - V.W.R. Dear V.W.R.: Sorry, but I know of no way to prevent frozen reconstituted orange juice from separating after it stands for a while. I mix mine in a covered container and simply give it a few shakes before pouring it. If you keep yours in a pitcher, just give it a stir before pouring. If you like frothy orange juice, you might try mixing it in a blender, which gives a nice foamy head to the juice.

Ho ho ho! 'Tis the Christmas season, a time of festivity and fun and credit card statements the length of "The Brothers Karamazov. " It's also a time when the publications at supermarket checkout counters are chock-full of articles featuring creative holiday craft ideas, with headlines like: "JFK JR. TELLS OPRAH: CAST OF 'FRIENDS' ATE MY BABY!" No, sorry, wrong type of supermarket checkout publication. The ones with the holiday craft ideas are the homemaker magazines, which are filled with articles like "50 Fun Holiday Crafts You Can Make with Your Saliva.

Paula Moore is a senior writer for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation If you're like most people, the turkey probably wasn't the only thing that got stuffed on Thanksgiving. The typical person consumes an extra 600 calories per day between Thanksgiving and New Year's and gains one pound during the holiday season. That doesn't sound like much until you remember that most of us never lose that extra weight. It stays on throughout the winter and keeps adding up, year after year.

HAVING A BALL. Brunswick Corp. is betting that bowling will be the in-thing with kids this year. So the company is coming out with a new line of bowling balls decorated in neo-Garbage Pail Kids style. There's Eyeball, a bloodshot orb; Muddball, a rolling glob of slime; Kong, as in King or Donkey, and Rex, a dinosaur. "They're strange," says a Brunswick official, "and that's what kids like. " FAMILY LIFE. There are more U.S. households but fewer people in each than ever. As of last July, the Census Bureau reported yesterday,there were 90,031,000 households - up from 88.8 million in 1986.

Unlike, say, Thanksgiving's green bean casserole, or Hanukkah latkes, what we drink during the winter season isn't necessarily rooted in immovable tradition and high-pressure expectation. And while a glass of supermarket eggnog never goes out of style for some folks, there's plenty of room for innovation in holiday cocktails. Swapping out spirits, going homemade with mixers, adding a new flavor profile with spices or different bitters - all can improve upon or reinvigorate the classics without radically disturbing the toddy-loving status quo. After all, these traditions exist for good reason.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ****. . . Your need to indulge probably is stimulated by all the holiday celebrations, parties, and shopping. Certainly everyone enjoys partaking in the good life, most certainly you this weekend. Make it your objective to meet a fellow soul mate in the next few days. You could have quite a hoot together. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ***** . . . As the sun goes down on Friday, you respond to the lunar night vibrations. They invite you to be you, and assume a central role in the next few days.

I love the holidays, because it's the time of the year when we all think about others. We have no choice. Even the crabbiest among us has to stop and think about somebody else, because with every gift, we have to ponder what that person really needs, wants, or loves. It's automatic unselfishness. That's why I never view gift-giving as commercial. Every harried shopper at the mall just wants to make somebody else happy. And in so doing, they make themselves happy.

SEARCHING FOR some cool stocking stuffers with a techy edge for under $30? How about a battery-enhanced toothbrush that sings like Justin Bieber, a protective case for a smartphone, or a vibrating magic "bullet" that turns a carton of eggnog into a loudspeaker? You may not have to go far for such cute stuff. Even stores not known for gadgets stack 'em high this time of year. Of course, goodies galore also await online for those who act fast. BEYOND BEYOND: A good example of living past its image is Bed, Bath and Beyond, notwithstanding the goofy "Dancing and Singing Rabbi" ($14.99)

MY FAMILY returned home from our annual winter holiday trip on Dec. 29 to the breaking news that Saddam Hussein was about to be hanged. While not an unexpected event, it was hard to eat pizza by. Were the news stations going to show the actual hanging? If they were, were we going to watch? And up to what point? And, although we were exhausted (think baggage claim at US Airways), we couldn't turn away. All of this was disturbing, to say the least, but what was even more disturbing was the commentators' repetitive emphasis that President Bush was already asleep and therefore unavailable to witness this.

Started planning your holiday party? Let me guess. You're going to serve eggnog. Maybe spiked eggnog, if you're feeling a little crazy. Mistletoe? Check. There may even be a "surprise" visit from Santa - definitely a Secret Santa gift exchange. And if you're lucky, your boss might get tipsy and say something he'll regret (just like last year). Ah, holiday parties. It's the season to be utterly predictable. Why not try to end the vicious cycle of pawning off that pair of reindeer-imprinted socks you got last year on some other sucker this year?

A neurotic builds a castle in the air. A psychotic lives in it. In Surviving Christmas, Ben Affleck's character rents a family to furnish it. How bad is this black comedy with Affleck as lonely marketing exec Drew Latham and James Gandolfini as Tom Valco, patriarch of the rental family? So bad you're nostalgic for Gigli. So painful you need an epidural. So mindless you'll lose yours wondering, "What were they thinking?" "Most Americans think Christmas is a time for the family and in order to endure it, they must be drunk as possible," Drew says to a client, pitching him on the benefits of spiking his product, which is eggnog.

With New Year's Day 1999 falling on Friday, most of us get the bonus of a three-day weekend. It's a chance both to extend the celebrating and to wind down from it. You might be planning an open house on New Year's Day. A casual post-parade supper. Or simply some half-time hunger relief. (That may be your only chance to divert sports fans from football bowls to food bowls.) For Saturday and Sunday, it could be more of the same. Whatever the motivation, a buffet presentation is the easygoing order of the day. And the selection might best include something hearty and hot. It's a chance to put that old crockpot to use, for slow cooking or simply for keeping chili, stew or soup hot for serving.
