Holiday Traditions Across the Country and Around the Globe
“Since moving to Hawaii, we have had no shortage of visitors throughout the holiday season! On Thanksgiving, I always make a pie for dessert, and we try to hit the beach when the weather is nice for some sand snowman building competitions.” – Tessa M.
“Every year, someone in our large family makes the same French Christmas cookies our grandmother made from irons she brought over from France.” – Cherie M.
“Every year, my family gives a gift in memory of my son, who died when he was seven years old from heart defects. We choose someone different every year who is not necessarily economically needy but a person or family that needs to know that they are special and loved. We call it “Ian’s Gift” I always write a short note to tell the person about my sweet boy. This year’s box is going to include a pound of Kauai Coffee Company since our family was able to visit your farm this summer.” – Amy M.

“Since we got married, we decided to stop traveling the length and breadth of the U.K. and spending more in our car than with family. We now buy our turkey from a local turkey auction, and it’s a family day out. We get to have brunch with our boys and get a free-range turkey that has lived a great life on a farm, which feeds us for ages thanks to the freezers (turkey and ham pie, turkey stroganoff – you name it!!). I need some aloha in my coffee pot and I’m all set for the season!!” – Jane L.
