Traditions Part II
We don’t have a lot of traditions in my family, just some very simple (and nice) ones. On the Sunday before Thanksgiving we get together with G’s mom’s family (you following so far?). It used to be at G’s nana’s house but she passed away two years ago on the 23rd (yes, the day before Thanksgiving that year). We still get together though and it’s very nice. Then on Thanksgiving day we go to my grandmother’s house (which I’ve had every holiday at that I can remember throughout my entire life) for lunch. It’s pretty laid back and my grandma does most of the cooking even though I offer to bring something EVERY YEAR. She just really loves doing it. After my grandma’s house is G’s dad’s family’s celebration. This is always spent at G’s mamaw’s house (his dad’s mom). That usually starts around 3-4 p.m. and doesn’t wrap up until 8-9 p.m. There are usually lots of children running around and there is almost always euchre involved. There is always lots of turkey, noodles, and yummy desserts every where we go and more love than I can possibly express.
Those are our traditions. Anyone else want to share theirs or maybe just their holiday plans??
