This Week’s Theme: Regional Traditions


Anyone else hear that word sung by the father in Fiddler on the Roof?

This week we are starting a fun two-week series on traditions but with a unique twist. Our first stop on the tradition train will be talking about regional or local traditions in the places where we are serving. Navigating holidays can be both special and challenging as we learn about local celebrations and the layers of meanings and rituals that accompany them. The holidays familiar to our hearts might be celebrated or they might not, and if they are, the decorations or customs might look very different.

We would love to hear about holidays where you are living! Do you have a favorite and how have you participated in these celebrations? Do holidays like Christmas look like they did in your passport country and how do you navigate the differences?

Jump into the conversation this week with us! Come share in the discussion through the blog posts this week, and you can also add your own pictures and thoughts on Instagram with the hashtag #VelvetAshesTraditions.
