Happy New year to everyone. I hope all have a happy, healthy, and rewarding year.
Holidays in my family come with some unusual gestures. At Christmas, we always put a
coconut (from the produce dept.) under the Christmas tree. Not sure why. It as something that was initiated by my
grandfather many, many years ago. Maybe because many years ago fruits and nuts were something special.
New years eve has a couple of rituals also. We put money (loose change) in every window sill. This is supposed to suggest
that money will come into your household in the coming year. We also put into a box, the things that you want in your lives
in the coming year. This is clothing from each family member, food, money, and in my case a lucky charm (not cereal). And a couple of
treats for the dog.
is said to bring into your household these types of items in the coming year. The box is put onto the back porch before midnight
and stays there until the next morning.
Crazy, sure - I guess.
Does anyone else have any rituals that they do for any reason ? Just curious.
Football today - YEAH !!!!!!
On New years day: Pork and cabbage (ribs and sauerkraut)
