DAY 9: Chestnuts Roasting – Composting at Christmas
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire was an American tradition evoking images of Christmas through the 18th and 19th centuries. Although vendors on city street corners selling roasted chestnuts during Christmas are fewer since a disease made American chestnut trees extinct; the tradition is still alive on certain parts of the country (New York City).
If you get around to roasting your chestnuts on an open fire this Christmas, know that chestnuts and other nuts can go in a HOTBIN.
For anyone with a sweet tooth, Christmas is the best time of the year. Whether it’s pudding on Christmas day, candy canes, cookies, a slice of cake or apple pie, along with a cup of eggnog, hot cocoa, coffee, or tea. If you don’t manage to finish them all off, just remember to remove all wrappers, break them up and then compost them. HOTBIN loves a sweet treat every now and then, and can compost them.
