My family is fortunate enough to live in a neighborhood filled with wonderful friends. The families look out for each other's children. Some families vacation together, others go to church together.We have an annual Oktoberfest celebration in the cul-de-sac with grills and a potluck supper. In our neighborhood, my daughters, Elise and Allison, are blessed with more than a half-dozen girlfriends (more like sisters!)...
Cecilia went on to describe annual Christmas gatherings that begin with caroling around the neighborhood with both Christmas carols and a Hanukkah song. Parents join is afterwards for hot chocolate, holiday cookies, and candies with the children.
It's a great way to celebrate the holiday season with friends. Try it in your neighborhood this year!
