Holidays and Celebrations:
As Christmas approaches get ready to talk to your family about their roots. Today is National Roots Day. Learn the stories about where you came from. My husband learned through DNA this year that his father wasn’t his biological father. He has a new sister and brothers through this discovery.
Check your closets. Do you still have gifts from last year in the original packaging? If so you may be able to help save the environment and regift to someone who would like it. There are some rules on National Regifting Day. Do not regift handmade items that were made for you. Do not regift items that have been used or no longer have the original packaging. Only regift items that would be appreciated by the recipient.
Small spicy hard cookies or Pfeffernusse are celebrated today. So try some of these small nut sized cookies on National Pfeffernusse Day.
