‘Tis the season to be jolly.
For those of us who are fortunate enough to actually have family, it’s time to get together. You’ll put up with Aunt Tillie’s unfiltered comments about everything from your attitude to your clothing, listen to pontifications by the patriarch, and eat that same ole tofu salad that your sister brings every year. You’ll experience dead silence when Uncle Sam’s name is mentioned – he’s still in jail. You’ll get to hear the cherished stories, be in the warm glow of family, and enjoy traditions passed down from generation to generation. You love them, even those who are rather odd. They’re family. … Oh, I forgot.
