For whatever reason, when I thought of a book with a swimming pool, my mind jumped to the bears swimming in popcorn in the tagged book 🤷

We gotta have our popcorn bucket every year even though no one eats the caramel corn.

21 pts total 798

ElizaMarie I used to buy one for my grandpa every year. He loves them. He didn't want us to ever get him Christmas presents (he didn't want “things“. He was a very practical man and did that whole “I don't need anything“ type of thing. So every year I bought him popcorn, new slippers and chocolate. I lost him last year in October (at the age of 98). Maybe I will buy myself some popcorn this year. I could modify this as a new type of tradition.

ElizaMarie Thanks for letting me share that with you. Sorry for the long winded comment. 3y
mdm139 @ElizaMarie thanks for sharing. My mom always sent my gramma popcorn from the Popcorn Factory, multiple times a year for the last seven years. Last Christmas my gramma finally confessed she hates popcorn! We lost her this past spring and little reminders during the holidays are tough. I hope you find comfort in your modified tradition. I raise a bowl of popcorn in memory of your grampa. Cheers, grampa! 3y

ElizaMarie Last year (our first Christmas without him was rough) every time I saw those tins. But this year it doesn‘t make me feel so sad but remember more happy thoughts about them. 3y
ElizaMarie Also I think it‘s super funny that your grandma didn‘t like popcorn but you guys were gifting her with it for years! 3y
marleed I love this thread. We have a local popcorn shop called Topsy‘s and their Christmas tins are kind of a big deal. It wasn‘t until I moved away for a while that I realized Topsy‘s was local to Kansas City, and somehow that‘s made the popcorn an even bigger thing for us. It‘s funny how traditions start. 3y
mdm139 @marleed I didn‘t realize how many traditions we had until the tradition prompt. We have a local gourmet popcorn called Popcorn Girl. They make better movie theater popcorn than the movie theaters. They also have popcorn tins and I will probably get one too to support their small business. And I loved Topsys when I lived in Kansas. Those were our tins growing up. And I still buy tins, just from local stores. 3y
mdm139 @marleed Topsy‘s probably is the reason why I get tins. And we use the popcorn tins to store cookie tins in and sometimes ornaments 3y
marleed Oh my gosh, then you know about that Plaza Lights Tin! When I moved to SAn Antonio and came back to KC for Christmas I realized I had not seen any Topsy‘s billboards. A couple conversations, a google search and the fun began! I hope Popcorn Girl provides you years of tradition! 3y
mdm139 @marleed. Oh yes and we went to the plaza lights every year. We would try to go on opening night but sometimes life got in the way and we went a different night. And we went to the park in Topeka that you drive thru the lights. 3y

Saw a National Theatre Live movie production of King Lear (with Sir Ian McKellen as Lear) - I‘m glad to have seen it but it‘s a 4 hour effort - so it was a popcorn dinner...

DivineDiana Was there an intermission? Popcorn dinner sounds perfect! 🍿 4y
Samplergal My kind of meal! 4y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @DivineDiana, 20 minutes but nowhere to buy anything more substantial... 4y

#emojinov day 22: 🌽
Popcorn was one of my favourite books when I was a kid. And the Oates book I'm kinda curious about. Have you read it?

Andrea313 I love Frank Asch's books so much! Happy Birthday Moon was a constant in my childhood reading rotation. ❤ 5y
Bookzombie I read it. My experience (only read 3 books so far) with Oates is that she writes real life disturbing. The title story is definitely that. There were only a few stories that had a supernatural feel. I enjoyed it but was sometimes left going ‘huh.‘ 🤔 5y
SassyBookworm I loved the popcorn book as a kid!!! I need to read that to my youngest daughter!! She‘d love it!! 5y

Day 27 of #30daysofReadathon is SNACKS, a favorite word AND thing. I'm team salty snacks all the way. Maybe salty & sweet, but mostly salty. Raiding the kids' lunch stash has never felt so right.

The 5yo practices his reading by reading out loud to his brother.
This was the first time he read the book on his own and he seemed even more tickled by the story than before!

This is a great "in the mood for Fall" picture book! The young bear is left at home when his parents go to a Halloween party, so he invites a few friends over and tells them to bring something to eat. One by one they come, all bringing popcorn, and the house fills up when they cook it all at once. This story is short and sweet, and my son yells, "More popcorn?!" in mock horror at random while we read it--very fun!
