My Pink Saturday post today is dedicated in memory of my mom. This holiday is a time of joyous celebration in saying good-bye to the past year on New Year’s Eve and at midnight we welcome in the New Year with the hope of good things. For me the holiday is not as joyous as is once was because my mother passed away on New Year’s Day in 2009. Mom was a sweet, loving, fun person and she loved to celebrate with her family. I will miss her forever…
For as long as I can remember we celebrate New Year’s Day here in Pennsylvania by watching the Philadelphia’s Mummers Parade on TV and eating a meal of pork, mashed potatoes, and sauerkraut.
