Favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve dinner with my family.

My favorite holiday tradition has always been having dinner with aunts, uncles and cousins at my grandmothers. Then after dinner we would all play bingo and my grandmother would give change to the winners. All my grandparents, my mom, and many of my aunts and uncles have passed on to glory. Everyone else lives so far away, including my own children and grandchildren, that we have not been able to get together in over 20 years, 7 years with my own children. So this time of year is very hard for me. But I am thankful that I love them all dearly, and am able to lift them all up in prayer. I pray they are starting their own family traditions.

We always have Christmas and Thanksgiving at my parents still, so we are blessed they are still around. We all do a pot luck so it is easier on my mom. Thanksgiving is always a wonderful time for everyone to bring some great dishes.

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree, especially using the very old ornaments which were from my mother’s first Christmas tree. Only have a few, but they have a place of honor.
