December 7 - Holiday Parties Did your family throw a holiday party each year? Do you remember attending any holiday parties?
The Christmas season was a time to visit. Somehow my mom and my aunts worked out a rotation so that we could go visit each home to see each other’s gifts, share some more cookies, and drinks and fun. Every now and then the schedule would get broken and we would have all the families end up at one house. We got to know our first cousins better that way too.
This must be why whenever we went to Pennsylvania for Christmas, we always went to all of my aunts' and uncles' houses for a different party.
----The family on my mom’s side of the family would all get together on Christmas Eve to party. I do not remember going to any other parties, just those with our extended family.
