December - Happy Holidays - No Meeting
December is a time for family and friends. Enjoy this time, talk about traditions, find out how everyone celebrated the holidays when they were 10 years old.
I lived with my parents and my younger sister and brother. We were here in California and all of our extended family lived in Alabama or Louisiana so Christmas was always just the five of us. We had a house with a floor furnace located in a central hall. You could look through the slats and see some of the tree and, as all our gifts came from santa and they were never wrapped, this was were we hung out until we could get our parents out of bed. Christmas was one of the few times we had a formal dinner and Christmas is when I learned to set a table: silverware 1 inch from the edge of the table, napkin placed with the fold in so you could easily grab the edge, knife and spoon on the right, fork on the left. What was your Christmas like?
