I remember as a kid wondering why we did certain things. Things like always watching a certain show on Christmas or eating a certain thing. Some of the things we did each year we things that I didn't love. Things like getting dressed up, then going to my uncles house was not something that I loved. As a kid, it made me wonder why we had to drive so far, wear things that I hated, and be in a house with so many people. Now, as an adult, I know it is because those traditions matter. Heading to a family members house and seeing everyone at Christmas, is the one time of the year that we all make an effort to get together. All of those traditions give us a connection to our past, to our memories.
Something that I loved as a kid, and I certainly love now, is at those family get togethers there was always a ton of food. There were things you knew would be on the table; My grandmother's scalloped potatoes, my aunts pumpkin pie, my uncle's Christmas ham, and someone would always bring Hickory Farms.
