More on traditions

Another wonderful post by Barefoot Kitchen Witch on Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions. I linked to her "Braiding Traditions" piece yesterday, and this post is a continuation. God. It makes me feel like we should compile all these traditions together ... her details about the "mixing bowl", the "stuffing bowl" - Every family creates itself in its own way. (Oh, and as promised: Jayne has posted the recipe for Springerle.)

And speaking of family, holidays, and traditions: here is Val's post about his Thanksgiving traditions - with his family from Cuba. His post brought tears to my eyes (his posts about his family usually do). I love the image of all the uncles with the highballs.

Thank you both for these heartfelt posts.
