Holiday on Gnome Hill
Okay, so most of our holiday celebrating revolves around eating... This is not necessarily a bad thing.
Sure, sure. There are families that put up a badminton or volleyball net, but this only detracts from what it really on everyone's mind.
Another activity we stress during our holiday get-togethers is teaching the young people a skill that can carry them through difficult times throughout their lives. We prefer to call them "mathematical manipulation challenges" so said young people don't write their "What I Did Over Memorial Day Weekend" about learning to deal blackjack.
One interesting phenomenon that occurs just about every weekend my family comes over: My African Violet sprouts interesting flowers.
