6. Of course.

We were a large ethnic family with lots of extended family who got together on the holidays. We ate lots of Eastern European dishes and baked goods that were only made for the holidays.

When I was a little girl, we celebrated two Christmases and Easters-- "American" and "Russian" (Orthodox). We always fasted on Christmas Eve and when we came home from midnight mass, had a feast of ham, kielbassa, etc.

None of these traditions have made it to the next generation. Most of my aunts and uncles have passed away and my cousins are scattered across the country. I have lost touch with most of them, unfortunately.

Wonderful memories, though.
