Christmas & Traditions

Since my husband and I were first married in 1973, I have made lefse for our Christmas breakfast. This means I am usually up very late , or very early making lefse. I suppose this means it is a tradition for our family. Opening our presents on Christmas morning, with fresh brewed coffee at hand, a plate of lefse near-by, and plenty of butter and cinnamon & sugar to cover each piece of this very Norwegian food just adds to all we enjoy on Christmas morning. Continuing many family traditions is a way of reminding ourselves of all that is important within a family, within a culture, within a history we deem important and well worth reminding our children and grandchildren of. Of all my husband and I hold dear, the one thing we would hope and pray is for our family, and especially our children and their children on down to many generations...remember, "..for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you; you will find the baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger." Luke 2:11,12 ( art by our granddaughter KN)

Merry Christmas to you, Kathy - and all you hold dear! We had the joy of rediscovering something from my husband, Ed's past - stollen bread! An Amish farmer's market opened in town this year and their bakery had some for sale. As soon as he saw it he was whisked back to his 1950's-1960's childhood when his mother made this for all and sundry. It was his Christmas breakfast and then some. He lost her when he was only 12 years old and hasn't tasted the bread since. He said the Amish recipe was the exact taste - we gave it to his children with a photo of his mother. Memories and home made traditions - joy to you!
