Growing up, my family didn't have too many holiday traditions. We moved around a lot and we didn't live too close to my other family. By the time we moved to where the rest of my family lived, my brothers were all older and had families of their own and we all just sort of did our own thing. The one thing tradition I knew we would always have was going to my grandparents house for Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas dinner.
My family is huge. I have 4 brothers, who all have kids, and my mom's sister has 4 kids, who all have kids. Then you add in my crew and the house gets very chaotic. It is the way we love it. The kids are running everywhere and the grown ups are finding their nooks to talk.
I think my love of making huge amounts of food for everyone to eat comes from my Grandmom. There was always tons of food. There was snacks to eat as people showed up. Lots of great tasting food for dinner and always lots of desserts. If you left my Grandmom's house hungry, it was your own fault. It was never from a lack of food.
While my Grandmom usually made most of the food from scratch, one thing you could always find on the table was Hickory Farms. Hickory Farms is America's most famous holiday food gift brand. It makes the perfect gift to give to family and friends for over 60 years. It isn't just me that remember always having Hickory Farms for the holidays. Many Americans have a distinct memory of having Hickory Farms at their holiday gatherings, and Hickory Farm prides them on being a part of those nostalgic moments.
