Tell Me Your Holliday Rituals

Standard

I had lunch with a friend and associate this week. She imparted her Christmas Menu, prepared every year. I’ll just give you a couple things, but suffice it to say that she is Italian: Home made bread wrapped sausage; stuffed squid; turkey and stuffing; and from scratch ravioli. She told me that there were other dishes that she just won’t make any longer either, like Bacalhau, which requires 3 days of preparation.

There is no major tradition in my house, save for a 2-day 3-house holiday shuffle. There’s no food systemic at any of the houses. The kids do have to sing to Sinterklaas for 5-7 days, up to December 5th, with their shoes full of carrots and apples for Schimmel (Sinterklaas’s horse), but that’s the only food that HAS to be in the house during Christmas. A new tradition is the kids helping me put up the Christmas tree, but that’s about it.

So, since I don’t have any traditional things that go on EVERY year the same way, I want to know what are your traditions. What makes the holidays, “The Holidays” for you?
