Sharon, your memories about cutting the pig are so real and it seems so much like our custom for Christmas ...great article! You have such a talent for writing you should write a book about your childhood memories!

Hi Adina,
Thank you so much. I can look at those memories and smile now, but I still could not watch such an event.

Sunshine to you today, it is beautiful here.
Thanks for reading the article, glad you could relate to it.

Sharon, My grandmother and mother made soap from lye and ashes, but I didn't understand it at all. But I DID know that lye itself was dangerous. That's all it took to dampen any curiosity that I had.

Another great, informative article!!

Thanks Gloria...
This one was hard to write until I got to the soap part. That memory is good, the other memory of Porky is not so good.

It is always nice to hear from you.
