    birthday
    In my extended family, there are 5 birthdays in a row in March: my grandfather, 3 of my cousins, and my father. When we were younger, our families would all get together with one cake with each of the birthday names on it. They would then take turns being sung to and blowing out candles - we would light & re-light candles and sing "Happy Birthday" 5 times, all while someone captured it all on 8mm film (that's what we had before digital cameras). My grandfather has since passed, and many of the cousins have moved out of town so we don't get together any more for these parties, but it's nice to remember.

    Christmas
    This tradition has been going on for at least 85 years, probably more! On Christmas morning, it is tradition for us to eat Oyster Stew for breakfast. I am a grown woman with 3 of my own children and I can tell you that I have NEVER enjoyed eating oyster stew. As a child, we were not allowed to open presents until we ate it. So...I always have. I do, however, love the thought that I am passing on a tradition to my children that my great, great grandparents did!!

    Easter
    I have Russian heritage so for Easter we cook lovely Easter bread in the shape of a cylinder called kulich - click here to see what it looks like. We also color hard boiled eggs in different colors and attend a midnight mass at church. After the church service we have a big feast with our families and eat lots of meat, eggs and Easter bread. Thank you for allowing me to add to your wiki!!!

    Every morning I drink a cup of coffee with soy creamer and watch the morning news program-"Morning Joe" for 15 minutes before I begin the rest of my routine. Every Christmas, I make sausage cheese balls and Pinehurst muffins for my family.
