When J left for his first year of college last year I hadn’t planned on seeing him until Thanksgiving of that year. Except he got a bit homesick and came for a quick visit in September, and then again to celebrate A’s 1st birthday in October. Each time we flew him home, even if it was for just for quick weekend visit. Not exactly what we thought when trying to figure out how to bring the comforts of home to college for him.
Russians are weird. Weird in their superstitions – don’t throw out trash when leaving the house because you will throw out all your good fortune – and weird in some of the things they do. I know this first hand because I was born to Russian immigrants. However, I didn’t realize how weird some of the things we did appeared until I was older and would visit the homes of friends from different cultures – or they would visit mine.
Thank you to HERDEZ® Brand for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to further celebrate the Mexican Las Posadas holiday!
We love learning about other cultures and recreating traditions with our own family to celebrate. We have friends that come from all different backgrounds and teaching the girls about different cultures helps them grow.
