One of the reasons this time of year is so special to me is that it is a time of family traditions.

Ask someone the simple question “what are you going to do for the holidays?” and without hesitation you will very likely get an enthusiastic response that includes something the family does when it gets together every year.

It might be a tradition that the great-grandparents brought over from the “old country.” It might be a new tradition that began when they were just a child and now has become their responsibility to keep alive. Some are deeply thoughtful and filled with meaning, some are comical and there are even those traditions started by accident that have now become an important part of the family’s holiday experience.

For all of us traditions create special memories that will last a lifetime, but even more importantly they renew that unique bond and sense of belonging among family members.

At Edible Arrangements we asked members of our corporate family to share some of their favorite traditions. If you click on the link to the video below you will see that the traditions are as wide-ranging as you would expect from such a diverse group.

My wish is that each of you will enjoy a holiday season filled with family, friends and loved ones, all sharing your favorite traditions.

Happy Holidays!

  • Throw Back Thursday

A friend of mine sent me this article from the New York Times for Throw Back Thursday —from five years ago!

This article brings back great memories and reminds me how far we’ve come! Hard work and perseverance have led me to success, but I don’t ever forget the hard times. My struggles have made me who I am today and remind me to not take anything for granted. It is also why I feel strongly that with success comes responsibility to help those in need — I have been there myself.

We all have struggles, but our commitment to continue moving forward in the face of adversity determines where we end up. For Throw Back Thursday, I’d like to share some of my story with you. My hope in sharing this article with you is that you will see that behind most success stories are tales of struggle and hard work. From experience, I can say don’t give up, keep going and you will make it through the hard times!
