Family Rituals I grew up with


There are some things I randomly think of and I am reminded of growing up.

  1. A big Sunday breakfast with all the trimmings, then Church followed by a late big lunch and something light for dinner.
  2. For all our birthdays, we would buy a birthday card and hide it from the birthday girl as we all signed something heartfelt.
  3. Attending Carol service on Christmas Eve then coming home together to prepare for Christmas Day.
  4. Hearing your birth story from my mom and now that we are all dispersed, she calls at at the exact time you were born. I get my call at 8pm.
  5. When I was in high school, my sisters and I on a Friday night would dance together and just unwind.

What are some of your own family rituals?
