Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and other special days are coming up in this HOLIDAY season!!! What are some traditions that your family practices in these upcoming months?
When I was growing up, my family always had to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with my dad's family and my mom's family. Usually, we would start at one family's house and then travel to the other family's house for TWO Thanksgiving dinners on Thanksgiving Day! I enjoyed the day AFTER Thanksgiving for all the leftovers! YUM! On Christmas Eve, my family always went to Christmas Eve Mass. When I was young, we spent Christmas Eve at my grandparents' house with my dad's side of the family and Christmas Eve with my mom's side of the family. When I got older, my cousin, who lives in Temecula, decided that she would host Christmas for our family on the Saturday after Christmas Day. As a result, our family traditions changed and after Christmas Eve Mass, we went out to dinner at Black Angus with my grandma, mom, dad, sister, aunt, uncle, and my two cousins.
What are some of your family traditions?
