I live in the south, the deep south. And one
thing I've learned in the years since I moved
south - they love a party. And tradition. We
can't forget tradition.
I don't think that's a bad thing. After all,
how many people do you know who have traditions.
A special meal at Christmas, the way birthdays
are celebrated, even things like going to church
We have traditions here at our house. Oh, they
changed over the years as the kids grew up and
left so we have different traditions now. Still
I love the knowledge that some things will probably
go on far longer than I'm around. Like Mardi Gras
and King Cake. And birthday parties, and shrimp
festivals, and Christmas celebrations.
Think about your traditions and hope they long
Allison, truly enjoying the season.
