Our traditions center around how we spend the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. My husband Bill's Mother hosts Thanksgiving dinner and all of her 5
children and their children are always there. For Christmas, names are drawn for the
children to exchange gifts. Everybody congregates around Mom's tree and the Gift
Marathon begins. Wrapping paper that has been hurriedly torn off gifts is balled up
and tossed at each other as we open presents. Certain "traditional" foods are served at both occasions and recipes are passed from Mom to all of us.
Another tradition for me (Anna) is whenever we visit Bill's Mom, she and I go to the
local Botanical Garden for a long walk. We also go there every Christmas Season to
walk through their Holiday Light Display.
