Family Traditions ... Old & New

Polish Poppy Seed Roll (makowiec) or as my Grandma always called it Mock.
My Christmas eve as a kid always started off at my grandmas house with a polish dinner and mock. Then we would head out to midnight mass to celebrate Christmas eve. Growing up with a Polish grandma brought many traditional polish dishes and customs. I have very fond memories of Christmas with my Polish grandma. I am very big on family traditions. I have my grandmas recipes for mock and kifle and I am trying to honor & keep the tradition alive in my family. So here's to old family traditions and to new ones! Try to honor at least one family tradition each year. Hope your new year brings you good health and happiness to your life !
