A Lovely Tradition
Now, more than 20 years later, 2 of the ladies, still lovely they are and haven't aged a bit, travel again to the same fine establishment along with anyone from the choir of Salem in the early morn this Saturday.
I love traditions and the holidays are packed with them.
We have, at my house, an unusual meal Christmas Eve and that is cheesesteaks that I make before going to Christmas Eve service. It came from a sad event a few years ago. My grandmother passed away Christmas Eve and the next day we really did not feel like preparing a Christmas Dinner, so I made cheesesteaks, because everytime I would ask Parke over the past years what he wanted for Christmas Dinner he would say "cheesesteaks".
Your traditions may be a simple as hanging the stockings or attending Christmas services. It could be reading the Night Before Christmas or from the Gospel of Luke. Maybe you walk through the streets of Catasauqua singing Christmas Carols.
