Something that sparks my interest, is how we as people implement cultural traditions to honor the seasons. What do we choose to do each season - even when we are busy or don’t feel inspired to do so? What traditions remain and why?
Those are big questions to continue to explore in upcoming issues of Woolgathering, but in this latest Winter Issue of Woolgathering, JoAnne Pavin explored the traditions around the holiday meal. JoAnne Pavin, founder of “The Meal” Movement and creator of “The Meal” Magazine, wrote about her family traditions surrounding the dinner table. So much important ceremony happens when we gather around a holiday meal - from recreating family recipes, retelling stories, and creating new memories - which are often based on funny mishaps.
