      This is one week, I did not have a certain family or ancestor to feature…or much time to give in the way I would liked to have on the holidays theme. This is also one time that I wished I had a blog!

      I shared the memory that my mother served our Thanksgiving dinners using serving dishes and utensils that once belonged to other women in the family – both grandmothers, great grandmothers, great great grandmothers, 3 generations of aunts, etc. How wonderful it was to pass around a dish that had once graced the tables when my parents were children…or even when my grandparents were children!

      And second that we celebrate our immigrant ancestors and the countries from which they came during Christmas/New Year’s with our adoption of a holiday tradtion or two from each country – enriching our own traditions that have grown up here among our families in America.
