I wanted to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!:)
Thank you all so much for your friendship, love and also support of my music!
Though these are very difficult times we live in and it has been a very tough year for me personally in many ways...It is important to count your blessings and remember those less fortunate...
Today...we prepare for tonight's feast and celebration...and putting out all of the family favorites...the cookies and pastries..the fruits...nuts, figs, dates...the tangerines in honor of my grandfather...all of the candies....especially the ribbon candy(does anyone still remember ribbon candy!LOL)I searched everywhere this year for it!lol), the antipasto...olives, lupini beans, artichokes, caponata(eggplant), hot peppers, stuffed peppers, gardiniera, stuffed clams, Finocchio(fennel), shrimp cocktail, cheeses and...and...I know! how do we ever eat the dinner after that!:)lol....
Whatever your background may be..I think it is very important to stay close to ones roots and celebrate your wonderful culture and traditions...embrace your past...it's good for you!:)
Being a lover of history and all things past....
Again... I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thank you for everything!
