Traditions That Unite FamiliesNo Comments
by Lorena Gonzalez
Yesterday our family gathered in San Antonio for our annual Tamalada. Three generations of women, and a few men, made dozens of tamales in what has become one of our oldest Christmas traditions.
But we weren’t just making tamales. We shared information, learned from each other, told stories, and created memories. To our family, the meaning of the Tamalada extends far beyond food. This tradition unites us as a family.
Our long-held Latino traditions can build stronger relationships within our families and communities. At this time of year, our wish at NAHF is that all of you are gathering to unite your families through traditions passed down from generation to generation. Merry Christmas!
