RockinPicks Is Sharing Her Holiday Traditions

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I love the day we bring out my Grandmother’s Hanukkah Menorah on the first night. For 25 years my husband and I have been using this this and before I became the owner I lit them with my Grandmother my entire life. As a tradition my husband I discuss getting a new modern one and every year we light my Grandmother’s. At the end we agree that next year we would get a new one. For 25 years we have gone though this exactly the way I said it. It’s our way of never being able to change the tradition.

What’s your favorite holiday food?
Potato Latke and apple compost. I make it the best.

What do you love most about the season?
Remembering God and being thankful for being with my family.

What is your favorite childhood holiday memory?
Going over to my Grandparent’s tiny hot apartment which had too many people, but everyone there was family and we loved each other. The kids would play together in the bedroom as that’s the only place we could go. Right before the meal the living room would be tranformed into a beautiful dining room Everyone helped. We all had our job. My Grandfather would light the candles and we would get gifts. Everything felt so warm because there was so many people and so much food cooking. It just feels right when I think back on it. Good times.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?
