To everyone in all corners of the world, Merry Christmas!!! I hope that today on this holiday season we enjoy the company of those we share the same roof with. For many years in my family since I was little, it is and still is a tradition to go to my grandmother home to have a Christmas dinner and open present with the rest of my cousin. The Christmas dinner is the traditional mexican food, tamales, rice and beans and ham. Top it off with dessert, my grandmother top secret cake. It the one thing everyone looks forward to eating since this is the only time of year she make it.
With COVID-19 this will be the first year she will not be having this Christmas dinner. It kind of sad, but it better safe then sorry. Having everyone safe and not someone or everyone getting sick. I always have a positive feeling when going and seeing my cousins and the next generation in the family. Kids running around, a smile on their face opening presents. Seeing that, takes me back when my cousins and I were doing the exact same thing so00000000 many years ago. Sitting on the exact same floor, running through the hallways, eating at the exact same table in the same room. I will and willing to wait until next year to continue on with this family tradition.
