Advent Calendar--Other Traditions
My ancestors all came from Europe and had Christian backgrounds. Christmas was what they would have celebrated. I don't know how they celebrated though. I have often wished that my parents and grandparents were still alive and that I could ask them questions about things I'm curious about. When I see people who know their great grandparents I think what a great blessing they have in their lives. My great grandparents all died before I was even born. If your parents, grandparents or great grandparents are still alive, now is the time to get their stories. Ask them what their lives were like and write it down. Some day you will be very glad you did and your children will probably be very glad too.
