Now that we're settling into our winter routine, this is a good time to stay in and work on your genealogy. Whether you sit in front of your computer or in a comfortable chair in front of the fireplace and TV you will be amazed at the amount of work you can get done.
Since we have just finished celebrating the holidays, have you ever thought about writing down what you did this Christmas (or other holidays...), who was there, what you had for dinner, what traditions your family has? Now is the time to do it while it is fresh on your mind.
Or you could even think back to your childhood days and write a short recollection of what your family did for Christmas then. We don't realize how much things change over time because they may be gradual, or we just forget we used to do something 'that way'. It will give a peek into the past for future generations to see and read what your family did 'back when.' It always helps to flesh out names-dates-places and show how folks were real people back then just like we are nowdays.
Merchandise style and design (e.g. decorations) change over time as well. If you have pictures it's always interesting to see what Christmas looked like in former days. Add them into your collection. If you can get them scanned into your computer that would be great! Then you can add them to your family history in whatever form you have it.
I would love to hear what some of your customs are or have been.
Happy Trails down Memory Lane, to you and Happy Ghost Busting!
