I always make Christmas cookies with whatever children are available, but we have other traditions too. One is that every year we read "The Night Before Christmas" and every year the littles fill in more words of the story than the year before.

We make Christmas cookies with the kids and play holiday music. It is fun and we get a chance to talk about things together. It is also great that we can give the cookies as gifts to neighbors and others to spread the holiday cheer.

The Thanksgiving tradition that was a must growing up was my grandmother making the stuffing. My mother and my aunts could not do it to the flavor that the kids liked it. It always had to be my grandmother.
Now that she has passed. I have gotten close but still not quite right but I keep trying.

My mom is a fantastic cook and it is a tradition in our home to make Chinese and Italian food along with our Thanksgiving Turkey. All my cousins, aunts, and uncles couldn't wait to come to my mom's house. Can you imagine the gluttony. Turkey, lasagna, traditional Chinese food, sushi, etc.
