A Family Feast to Remember ~ by Cynthia Goch

“One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” ~ Dr. Seuss

Actually, there are 7 Fishes in the celebration of the Italian Tradition, “Feast of the 7 Fishes.” I grew up with this Italian tradition as I took part in the many days in preparing for Christmas Eve and the many dishes of the fishes!  It is a tradition that continues, and lives within the heart of my family today.  Read more


The Gift You Give Yourself - by Ken Dill

Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving - by Frances Abrams

Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year—and it has nothing at all to do with the turkey.  For me it is all about family traditions.  Thanksgiving has always signified a time for family and loved ones.  It’s  about gathering around the living room and reconnecting with kids and people you love.  It’s about watching the Macy’s parade and the football games and going for a long walk on a cool, brisk November afternoon.   Read more
