Holidays and tradition

Posted: December 25, 2012 in Life, love, Uncategorized

As I sit here thinking back to the time where my grandparents kept the tradition of family gathering going. I shed a tear.
After they past,everyone took different paths. No more laughing and dancing with people you love. Now it’s he said,she said leaving the house full of ghost.
Petty differences and self righteous attitudes have silence the holidays. I often sit and wonder about all this. I could recall a time when just about every cousin knew and we grew up with one another. Now,people barley speak to one another, unless someone dies. Family should mean love and when the chips are down. They should stick together. Not who’s got more than who, or who doesn’t like someone’s spouse.
Hmmmmmm, maybe I’m just an old soul with outdated thoughts,hopes and dreams.
If I ever have a child, it would have been nice for him/her to experience one if those old school gatherings. Which are so vivid in my head. The dancing,recalling old funny,yet embarrassing stories, aunts and uncles singing oldies. Was a good time to be had.
I got so use to spending the holidays alone with the memories of what they use to mean to us as a family.
If you’re lucky enough to still have a family tradition going on. Find ways to keep it going, even when the elders past. Memories of the past can be great. However new memories can be greater.
Merry Christmas all
