The Tradition Maker

(Thanksgiving Day, 2010)

It wasn't long ago that I was simply an attender. My mom, or my aunt and Grandma, took care of Thanksgiving dinner. My dad drove the car and took us to visit old friends. We watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with cousins and we opened early Christmas presents if we knew we wouldn’t be together later. I didn’t buy the presents. I didn’t cook the food. I simply got in the car, ate, and opened. I attended.

How do you feel about making traditions? What are some of your favorites?
