Saturday Snapshot: A Party for the End of the World

A friend of mine had planned to host a holiday party Friday evening–and when she realized it was the last day of the Mayan calendar, it promptly became a Holidoom party, with appropriately-themed food and activities.  There were Ground Zero Grilled Cheese sandwiches, Dinosaur chicken nuggets, a Chocolate Tar Pit, and Zombie Gingerbread Men.  And I am happy to report that we saved the world in a truly epic game of Pandemic.

It was a pot-luck, so before the party I set myself thinking along the lines of puns…and cooked up a dish of Mushroom Clouds, Radiation Leeks and Mutant Yellow Tomatoes.


I couldn’t come up with much in the way of themed-clothes, but I did wear my skull-and-crossbones socks!


Heading to any holiday parties this weekend? Ever been to a party with a stranger theme?

  1. Sounds fun! I love your punny dish! My sisters and I have a Ragnarok party every year in July. (Norse end of the world.) We’ve been doing this for years, and have still managed to have one every year together even though we are now rather spread across the state. Its origins are rather dubious, but basically it’s just an excuse to party and stay up ’til midnight drinking rootbeer floats. :p

    1. I LOVE that!! I think I have to tell my friend who hosted the Holidoom party. We may need to copy the tradition. And that’s so great that you have it with your sisters every year. Families always get together on Christmas, so why not another holiday? 🙂
