Family Traditions: Fat Tuesday & Lent

www.lifewiththepea.com







Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, officially the last day of gluttony before we Christians  traditionally opt for a more ascetic lifestyle during the season of Lent, a period of forty days beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Easter Sunday symbolizing the forth days Christ spent fasting and in pray before starting his ministry. During lent, we typically sacrifice something… Continue

Family Christmas Traditions: Dickens Village

DickensVillage (cover)



I think everyone here is pretty much familiar with the 1843 story of The Christmas Carol: you know, the one about that old miser who hates everything, especially Christmas, until he is visited by four ghosts  (yes, there are four - everyone leaves out poor old Marley), who tell him if he doesn't change his ways he is pretty much going to die alone and miserable…

Family Christmas Traditions - Washington's Crossing

cover





I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! After a long and super busy week full of birthday and Christmas celebrations, I finally had a moment to sit down, go through some photos, and jot down a few thoughts.



As you can tell, our little family is BIG on traditions. Even thought I come from a terribly dysfunctional family, we had quite a few of our own and…

Family Traditions: Macy's Christmas Light Show

macy'slightshowheader

Philadelphia may not be as decadent and elegant as New York when it comes to our Christmas celebrations, but we definitely have a few things that simply cannot be found elsewhere in the nation. One of these holiday traditions is the Macy's Christmas Lights Show.



When I was a kid, Macy's was actually John…

Family Tradition: Comcast Holiday Light Show

comcastxmas-cover

Part of our Christmas Holiday traditions includes attending the light shows offered all over the city, both commercial and neighborhood run. There are few things more spectacular during the holiday season than elaborately decorated displays with beautifully strung lights, rich deep reds and greens, and the smell of pine emanating from fresh cut Christmas trees. And in addition to the highly publicized, world famous Wanamaker Light Show (now Macy's), which I will be discussing…

Why We Started Celebrating St. Nicholas Day

Last year our family added a new tradition to our Christmas celebrations, the observance of St. Nicholas Day.

If you’ve never heard of St. Nicholas Day, don’t worry. Neither had I until my sister-in-law shared about it a few years ago, and it wasn’t until last November…

Family Traditions: Thanksgiving Parade



For many the beginning of the Holiday season begins on Thanksgiving Day, however, for us, it *officially* begins on Thanksgiving parade day...no, not the big New York parade or even the Thanksgiving Day parade here in Philly. Every year we take Eamon to get his first glimpse of Santa Claus at the Mayfair Thanksgiving Parade in northeast Philadelphia. There are dancers, Irish bands, the all-important Mummers appearances, and, of course, Santa. It's a simple parade full of…

Bummer! A Halloween Tradition Ending....

I knew that it would eventually happen.  I know kids get older and that things get weird. . . . . .

at least for me.  I was hoping that it wouldn't happen this soon! 

What am I talking about? 

One of my favorite family traditions is languishing.  Dying, I tell you.  Ever since my son was a baby we've dressed for Halloween as a family.  Sometimes we go with a…

Summer Fun as a Family

The taste of ice cold lemonade, the feeling of the cool grass between your toes, the sounds of children laughing, the smell of sunscreen and chlorine, and seeing your neighbors in their yards… ahh, summer time is finally here! It doesn’t matter your age or what your work schedule looks like, this time of year seems to bring out the fun in most of us. For our kids it is the break they have been looking forward to since New Year. For adults, it reminds us of our own youth and how carefree we…

I don't really do normal, and that's OK

Last week, one of my coworkers asked me what our plans were for the Fourth of July weekend. And it threw me a bit off guard. You see, I have ways to celebrate Christmas Eve and birthdays and other…

Let's learn something: Valentine's Day Monsters are fun

When I was little, every holiday had a mascot. There were the usual suspects (Santa, Easter Bunny), and then there were the ones my mom made up. Like the one for Valentine's Day.…

What are your Holiday Traditions? Plus Giveaway!

Do you have family traditions during the Holidays? I remember when I was a child, every Christmas we'd get new pajamas. The night before Christmas we would wear our new PJs and I couldn't wait to be able to open the presents in the morning. I loved waking up to Christmas music and Christmas breakfast! I even looked forward to those traditions as a teen.…

Why you should eat cake for breakfast and tips for other family traditions

Sometimes my mom let us eat cake for breakfast. (Maybe "let us eat cake" is the wrong phrase. Maybe I should say "turned a blind eye while we devoured leftover cake.") It wasn't often, but it's something I have vivid and fond memories of from my childhood. (Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure she was eating that cake with us. So, thanks, Mom!)

So, I think of that…

When Sandy gives you rain...

Hurricane Sandy left us cold and wet on Halloween. Normally we would hold Trunk or Treat in our church parking lot but the storm made us make some changes to our tradition.  Because we have a large lobby and gym, our leader - Fred - decided we would be holding what…

Is the Jig REALLY Up?

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household?  Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…
