OMG! When we were little my two Grandpas (Zemanek and Nussbaum) would come over on Xmas eve day to watch us four boys until my folks closed the grocery store that evening.
step #1. pop the tap into a keg of Blatz beer sitting in a galvanized tub with ice in the middle of the back room.
step #2. open a gallon
jug of pickled herring with crackers.
step #3. turn on football game on TV.
step #4. send grandsons to retrieve more Blatz & herring as needed!
Herring was traditional in our family for all the holiday season.
I still LOVE the stuff, but lleechef says "Bleecchhh"
