Looking again on Christmas – The Way We Had been
Through the Pandemic maybe we have time to consider back again to our childhood Christmas memories with gratitude. Simply because I grew up in Hungary, my Christmas is a little bit various from the American customs.
Xmas was a 3-day holiday event. On the 24th, the Christmas Eve menu provided fish or vegetarian items. Meat arrived on Christmas Day and a day following only. Christmas eve was mostly for the close loved ones. Next working day the broader loved ones relished a lunch with each other. And on the 3rd day good friends, neighbours. We had been so complete of food! Items ended up opened on Christmas Eve – so all the young ones and grown ups had been dressed festively when they opened their gifts…
I continue to make marzipan “Szaloncukor” – which is a Hungarian Xmas candy hanged on the tree. It is like a little Christmas cracker, but we hung them on the tree. (We used to steal the chocolates inside , then diligently wrap the cover once more, unnoticed by our Mom…)
Have a Extremely Whatsapp Xmas!
You could not journey or have company – that could not be smart. But appear at it as an chance: you nonetheless can do a ZOOM occasion: share the menu, take in a plate jointly – no problem to execute for a whole lot of people today! – It worked for us for the duration of Thanksgiving: we have expert a foodie spouse and children on the net sharing. My loved ones has a whole lot of pretty proficient cooks. Way right before Thanksgiving we begun a discussion texting the menu. These gourmand cooks bombarded my WahtsApp with tips, later on photographs!
There will be only the two of us all over again at the desk this Christmas. Cancelled all visits owing to COVID. But once more, the excellent aspect of it, that I do not have to adhere to standard custom and can be really liberal fusing Hungarian and American tradition.
