(c'mon - we need a lighter topic around here right now)
Just cause I luv ya honey buns......here's a "lighter topic"
for us to discuss.......and much more pleasant, too.
It's close to Thanksgiving, so how about sharing family traditions that are carried out at Thanksgiving with one another. There might be someone who wants to dump the traditional way of celebrating that fine holiday for some new ideas to try.
I'll go first......
Growing up, my family always celebrated Thanksgiving with my Mom's family because my Paternal Grandparents and other relatives of my Dads were Jehovah Witness, and did not honor holidays of any secular sort.
At my Maternal Gramma's home, the kids were always fed first
...Gramma would have it no other way. :kiss Gramma also served each child a small glass of Mogan David Grape Wine with our meal.....against our parents wishes.....however....no one would go up against my Gramma....
.....she'd have their hide with a broomstick if they did. :chuckle
After stuffing our faces and bellys with delicious food, we would all gather around in my Gramma's living room and sing songs in harmony, share family stories, and celebrate my birthday as I am an "almost turkey baby". This year, I celebrate my birthday the day after Thanksgiving. :kiss
Now, you all share. Keep it light now!
