November Genealogy Challenge Met
The cemeteries they submitted are being converted to Cemetery Walk Videos and I am uploading them to Olive Tree Genealogy YouTube Channel as I complete them. A huge thank you to those who accepted my November (and in Bobby's case, the October!) Genealogy Challenge
December Genealogy Challenge: Bring Back a Family Tradition
Every Christmas my dad would buy a huge assortment of nuts - a very special treat. He'd place them in a big bowl by his chair along with his metal nutcracker and pick (which I still have). It was a much anticipated treat and this year I'm going to repeat it.
When my grandchildren and children come to visit, I'll talk to them about my dad and how much we all looked forward to sitting in the living room cracking open our favourite nuts (mine were brazil nuts!). Mind you I can't participate in the eating since I'm allergic to nuts but I can still enjoy the time together.
Some other ideas are to string popcorn to make a garland - did your family do this? How about making a special dish that your mom or grandmother made for a holiday dinner? Did you have a special book or story that you read every Christmas Eve? I'm sure you can think of something special in your family that you can introduce your children or grandchildren to.
