Searching back again on Xmas – The Way We Have been
In the course of the Pandemic perhaps we have time to consider again to our childhood Christmas recollections with gratitude. Because I grew up in Hungary, my Christmas is a bit unique from the American customs.
Christmas was a 3-working day holiday break function. On the 24th, the Xmas Eve menu involved fish or vegetarian things. Meat arrived on Xmas Working day and a day right after only. Xmas eve was mainly for the near household. Upcoming day the broader family loved a lunch collectively. And on the third day close friends, neighbours. We ended up so total of food! Presents had been opened on Christmas Eve – so all the young children and older people had been dressed festively when they opened their gifts…
I still make marzipan “Szaloncukor” – which is a Hungarian Christmas sweet hanged on the tree. It is like a little Xmas cracker, but we hung them on the tree. (We utilised to steal the sweets inside of , then very carefully wrap the deal with all over again, unnoticed by our Mom…)

You could possibly not vacation or have company – that may well not be wise. But seem at it as an opportunity: you still can do a ZOOM bash: share the menu, take in a plate jointly – no trouble to execute for a ton of individuals! – It labored for us for the duration of Thanksgiving: we have seasoned a foodie loved ones on line sharing. My relatives has a great deal of very gifted cooks. Way right before Thanksgiving we started out a discussion texting the menu. These gourmand cooks bombarded my WahtsApp with concepts, later pictures!
There will be only the two of us all over again at the table this Xmas. Cancelled all visits due to COVID. But yet again, the fantastic side of it, that I don’t have to follow standard custom and can be fairly liberal fusing Hungarian and American tradition.
