Left Overs

To my son Tommy,

Today was leftovers day at Nansy's house.  We always make too much for the initial holiday and then for a day or two afterwards we come back and scarf down the extras.  Whatever is left after the leftover days is divided up and sent home so Nansy isn't stuck with a bunch of food that she couldn't possibly eat in a year.

Family tradition is important.  Any reason to extend the holiday spirit and get together with our family an extra day is a fine tradition to keep up.  Leftover day might not qualify for a full on family tradition but it sure encompasses the core spirit.  When you are full grown and with a full family of your own, look back on these traditions and learn and incorporate as many as you can into your life.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
