Family Christmas Traditions

December 21, 2015

Thank you to my Guest Blogger, Cousin, and Genealogy Buddy, Kevin Hackett for this article. (By the way, his most excellent family history website is at It is a great place to get accurate, well-documented Aderman family history.) Kevin writes:

As we near Christmas, not only do we start to think about the meaning of the holiday, but also our families. As we gather together during this holiday season, not only do we talk about what the various family members are doing and what the kids are up to, but we also have our family traditions that were passed along by our forebears.

Do you have a favorite dish or desert that your parents or grandparents used to make that you have preserved the recipe and continue to make today? Do you have a tradition or special prayer you still use? If not, maybe this is the time to resurrect that old family tradition you remember from your early life.

By carrying on these traditions, we honor those family members who have passed on before us and we bring them a little closer to us during this special time. You could be surprised how it warms your heart along the way.
