Oh, I loved Fiddler on the Roof. This clip is from the opening of the movie and I can relate to it.

I have my own traditions, take Christmas for example. Every weekend right after the American Thanksgiving holiday, I begin my once a year jigsaw puzzle – and can’t sleep very well until it is completed!

Another tradition started with the purchase of a single little house and has now created urban sprawl in our living room – my Christmas village. As the grandchildren have grown, there is a tradition of them asking me about every building and, “What is this one? What is this one?” Usually around the ages of 4 or 5, their imagination is most involved with the village.

And then the Christmas Tree goes up in the living room and we just can’t seem to be satisfied with a normal tree. This year we have two again, but they take up quite a bit of space.

Tomorrow the decorating begins, but I have to finish the jigsaw puzzle too!

Oh yes, one more tradition- hot cocoa, popcorn, and an old movie on tv.
