2010 Jan 01 - New Year's Day

2010 Jan 01 - New Year's Day

New Year's Day when I was growing up was a big deal. All of the men would go from home to home to have a bite to eat and a drink for the New Year. All homes were within a very small geographic area then. The women would spend a day or two before New Years preparing a lot of food.

Those days are long gone, but mom still prepares some of the traditional dishes for the New Year. And only a couple of our friends families come over.
