The meaning of family by Seelie Kay #family #holidays #celebration

What is the meaning of family to you and how does your family celebrate Christmas?
 
My grandparents were immigrants from Slovakia and brought many traditions with them. The first is gathering the family around the Christmas tree for a candlelight reading of the story of the birth of Jesus. The second is the breaking of oplatky, a flavorless wafer with a touch of honey, that is broken and shared with family members to wish everyone a good new year. The tradition is hundreds of year old. Back when bread was scarce, exchanging bread was considered a gesture of good will. Finally, Christmas is about family. We share a lot of memories and celebrate the fact that my 92 yo dad is still with us!
