Getting Ready for the Holidays

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, this is the time of year when we celebrate with family and friends. The holiday season also is a time for honoring customs and traditions. We eat familiar foods, watch parades, or football games, and participate in other activities that help strengthen our family ties.

My recent article “Customs Made” in the December issue of Family Tree Magazine discusses the role of folklore and tradition in family history. If you’re interested in reading about it, a copy of the article is available (with kind permission from Family Tree Magazine) on my Web site.
