Happy Holidays!

This time of year is one of my favorites – even the cooler weather. We gather as families and friends, enjoy special foods and traditions and in my family it is also a time of reminiscing.

In our family we celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas. Last night we ate latkes and lit the first candle on our menorah. My husband’s grandmother was born and raised in Israel, her family immigrated from Poland and we enjoy being able to honor her and her family by keeping the family traditions alive. As Hanukkah comes to an end we will continue to honor and celebrate other traditions from Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, and England.

We talk about our ancestors, their religions, their traditions, and how they came to the USA and Canada. We look at our trees and how we are all connected. Some of the stories, pictures and recipes have been passed on, and for some I need to research a little more. I think of all the research my family and I have done over the years and how much simpler it is with online records!

I hope that as you go through this holiday season that you take some time to reflect on who/where you come from.

From my family to yours ~ Happy holidays!
