Christmas traditions........ Hoedowns.....














Picking...





















Grinning....





















Laughing....














Dancing...

And even a little "homemade" mountain liquid refreshment filled the evenings
at my parents annual Christmas jams. All their old-time musician friends came down from the mountains and hollers and gathered at my parents log home for an evening of playing Appalachian music around the stone hearth......fires lit, hearts warm. Even us young 'uns enjoyed the evenings, dancing and singing along. One tradition I love and miss now that I am far from home.....

It reminds me of the hoe down at Fred's Sunday night. I guess he didn't take any photos.

Sounds like fun! Christmas traditions are the best, passing them down, year after year, they get better and better.
