AnnaMKB Is Sharing Her Holiday Traditions

Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 12.05.23 PM

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Wigilia (pronounced vee GHEE lee ah). This Polish feast, taken from the word for “vigil” is celebrated on Christmas Eve and begins when the first start is visible. My family and I extend the feasting (with breaks in between courses!) until midnight, when we open our gifts.

What’s your favorite holiday food?
Tourtiere! I make it using the recipe my mother in law shared with me.

What do you love most about the season?
Being together with my family and passing our traditions on to another generation.

What is your favorite childhood holiday memory?
Going to Midnight Mass with the family after Wigilia.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?
No dreams needed – I live in the Great White North, and we’ve had snow for quite a while now!
