Holiday Dilemma

Dear Veghedda,
During the holidays I go to family and friends where the food is not very vegan friendly. What do I do to further our cause and not create hostility?  Wondering in Tivoli

Dear WiT,
Bring some well prepared and attractive vegan food to share. Use familiar ingredients - as this is holiday time a dessert can be included. Yes, tell people your offering is vegan, but do not try to discuss the issue. If someone asks, speak with them privately about why we do what we do.

Happy Holidays,
Veghedda
