Family Celebration #BlogFlash2012 Day 12

If you have been reading my #BlogFlash2012 posts so far, it should come as no surprise that the first thing that comes to mind when I see “celebration” is family. The biggest celebrations center on family. The birth of a child, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, and holidays bring families together. Our family celebrations always include food. Dishes that we look forward to each year include Aunt Judy’s butterscotch pie and Grandma’s fritters with real maple syrup. Many times these occasions are the only time that I see certain family members and get a chance to catch up on what is happening in their lives.

  1. I agree family and food always go well together. Most of my celebrations are family related too.

    Nice post.

  2. Family celebrations are important. As you say, sometimes it's the only point in the year that you see certain family members.

    Really nice post Angela :)

  3. I couldn't agree more about food and family. So many happy family memories are around a great meal together - or even a bad meal in good company!

  4. I so rarely see my family I am usually very nervous when we are all together again, as we will be on December 26 for my parents sixtieth anniversary. The last time we were all together was my brothers funeral more than five years ago.

    I pray it will go well.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I am glad I found you via BlogFlash today!

  5. I love family celebrations. When I was little my grandparents always had a family get together at the local buffet. Our family is huge. They had 4 kids. Between them there are 12 of us grandkid. So you can imagine how big that gathering was. It was fun though. We also went to family reunions. I'll never forget the Thanksgiving meals we had at my Uncle Ed's house too.


I love hearing from you! Please share your thoughts with me :-)
