December 2

This should have been posted yesterday but I didn't get around to it.

Do you remember making any specific recipe with older family members? What was the experience like

Every year for Christmas, for as long as I can remember, my mom would make candy to give to the neighbors. I remember what seemed like hours stirring until the candy was at the perfect temperature. This was a time when we could visit and joke around with each other. I especially loved this part of the Christmas Season.

We always had fun delivering the candy to the neighbors and wishing them a Merry Christmas. Now my mom will mail some Christmas Candy to her children. It is always a fun box to receive because it is tied to so many memories.

I rarely make candy at home so my kids don't really know the fun of the experience. Last year my mom started inviting us to come, one family at a time and make candy with her. I hope my kids treasure this memory the way I do.
