In the Christmas season, and Marsha’s extended family usually gathers for an evening of song. Christmas carols and traditional songs are belted out by the three generations assembled as someone leads from the piano. The musical efforts are sustained by holiday eats and beverages – wine, punch or cider.
It’s one of the most Christmassy things we do – setting aside the shopping, cooking, wrapping and decorating for a time of family fun. And fun it is! Children of all ages join forces with their cousins, singing favorite songs and eating a few too many Christmas sweets. Fudge, each family’s favorite cookies, spiced nuts and sometimes a fruitcake are all on offer.
