Tis the season for the memories and traditions that make our holidays bright. Last month, I asked subscribers of my newsletter to share some of their traditions and it made me realize that though we’ve never met, how alike we are in our traditions! Thanks to all who sent in so many great traditions! Here are the five chosen winners, how many are like yours?
Marilyndkc writes~ We always use my maternal grandmother’s recipe for stuffing. The pies are left from supper. We then have our turkey sandwiches, one with mayonnaise and the other spread with cranberry sauce. We watch the Charlie Brown and the Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving videos. I guess we never grew up because there are only adults in the house.
(*Editor’s note: Grow old , but never grow up! that’s my motto!)
RetiredEsther writes~ This is a tradition that came about from necessity, my husband was a firefighter, I worked at a veterinary emergency clinic, so our hours were erratic at best. Every year was different sometimes I might be off or my husband was off, so we never celebrated on Thanksgiving Day. We would pick a day that we were both off and the family could all get together whether it was a week before or the week after. This also allowed as our children got older to celebrate with the “other side” of the family, and we still would have a great day later or earlier. It also made the children realize it wasn’t the exact day that had a meaning but how we should feel at any time. It has come in handy as my son who is a police officer now has the same tradition with his family. It took them a while to get use to the untraditional tradition, but it has become a tradition with them also. Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Amy2read writes~ My huge family gets together and cooks all day, we eat all day while watching football and then all change into our stretchy pants lol.
(*Editor’s note: BEST part of the day! 😉
Jwisely writes~ Our family’s tradition is to have the children in the family make the centerpieces/decorations for the table. One time it was pine cone turkeys; another time it was painted small pumpkins.
Fourseasonsny writes~ Making gingerbread houses!
Congratulations to the five winners! Each was presented with a gift of a $5 Amazon gift card to fill their kindle stockings with a few good reads! Maybe they are like your traditions, or perhaps will inspire you to start your own!
COMING NEXT: Readers asked for it, and I’m pleased to share Book I in a NEW series celebrating lives, loves, and mayhem of those folks you’ve come to know in End of the Line, Montana! Watch March 2016 for NO STRINGS ATTACHED–The LAST HOPE RANCH series

As we close another page on another year, I want to thank my readers who inspire me with their letters, their reviews and support over the years! It means so much that my stories bring you a few moments of happiness and joy in a world where sometimes it feels people have gone a little mad.
My wish for you is peace, kindness, and contentment with many blessings & cowboy dreams~
