Once in school as a quick write we were asked what family traditions we celebrate at home. Nowadays that can be difficult for some (single parents or broken families). I grew up in a Christian home and was blessed (not without its share of difficulties though). My husband and I live in Ukraine (we are from the States). My family spent certain holidays doing certain things. The "bunny plate" was for breakfast and the honored birthday guest sat at the table munching their favorite homemade delicacy. At Thanksgiving, we had family come from all over CA to celebrate but my favorite was when my cousins and I walked off the turkey and "talked" as we shared stories about life. During Christmas, my immediate family did the Luke story, stockings, the tree and sang carols then opened gifts. My mom made creamed egg on toast (really good-yummy). Anybody have any other family traditions to share. Even odd or weird or different is good. Ideas are to be shared and appreciated. Thanks. Janette (Our baby boys says thanks).
