Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories: December 11 - Other Traditions


Did your family or friends also celebrate other traditions during the holidays such as Hanukkah or Kwanzaa? Did you immigrant ancestors have holiday traditions from their native country which they retained or perhaps abandoned?

If my family had any traditions brought with them from the old country [Germany and France] they have long ago been lost and I have never learned of them.

We did not celebrate any other type of holiday traditions or celebrations during this season.

What about your family?

This post is a part of the "Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories" meme created in 2007 by Thomas and Jasia. You, too, can write your own Christmas memories, either for your personal journal or blog. Visit Geneabloggers to participate and to read others' posts on these topics.

Thank you so much! That beautiful view at the top of my blog is taken from Turkey Cree in Monroe County, West Virginia and is facing Peter's Mountain.

I echo GeneaDiva's comments about your blog header. A beautiful photograph. Earlier this year I passed through West Virginia on a college basketball road trip to Salem, VA. Beautiful views and hope to return for a longer stay. Have enjoyed your blog posts -
