Of all the times of the year, the Christmas season seems to be surrounded by more traditions than any other. Some of the traditions originate in our family, some are traditions of the church, while others are community based. The traditions seem to be important to us: some bring back precious memories, while others have lost their original meaning. Do you understand why any given tradition is important to you?
Let me share with you an Anderman Family tradition and why it is important to me. For my family, Christmas is not complete without grandma’s flaming plum pudding. As long as I can remember, my grandmother (my mother’s mother) always spent Christmas at our house. She would devote the month of December to making all kinds of delicious cookies and then once she arrived at our house she began making the plum pudding.
