Your Favorite Holiday Family Traditions
It’s the holiday weekend, so what are your favorite Holiday family traditions. Is there something you play, you do? That’s what came up this morning on The Mike & Carla Morning Show this morning. You would be amazed at some of the traditions mentioned this morning!
Growing up, a lot of families would get together to play games…board games, football, etc. It’s funny that some families still share in “traditions” around the holidays that most might not. Depending on where you grew up or how you were raised, a lot of these traditions might have just fallen by the way side.
What Are Your Favorite Holiday Family Tradition?
Watching football on Thanksgiving or playing…some families did both. I know for me, we would watch the parades in the morning, football in the afternoon and wrap it wrap it up with the Orange Bowl. They had annual halftime show that was amazing featuring lights! They would turn off the lights in the stadium and on the field, that’s where the magic would happen.
Carla Rea even mentioned that playing football was not something they would doing during the holiday weekend. Maybe a board game here or there, but nothing that would take a long time.
Now, Morty, our executive producer, being from Hawaii said that football was never played, but he does remember one thing. Mannheim Steamrollers! Every year you would hear that playing at the house. Oh, he also mentioned the Hawaiian rolls that everyone loves! Had to make sure there were enough!
Others that called in this morning mentioned movies and/or tv shows. Every year, the family would gather around the tv to watch a special, a movie or something on tv. Back then, movies like “The Wizard of Oz” would only come on once a year around this time. For that reason alone, you had to watch it!
But we understand that families change and so do the times. So, what was it that your family engaged in during the holidays? Enjoy the segment below, and see if something doesn’t come to mind!
