Our traditions or the way I have recalled said traditions kicks in high to share with my daughters and new traditions are started, adding to the mix. We would all gather at my Mom's parents, down the street, for presents, dinner and merriment. When I say ALL I mean all, know matter who was divorced, their ex spouses still came for it was important to gather for US the children. I don't know when everyone got all self important and started segregating, it is just a crazy thing. The families are not growing, we need each other.
