    Do you suppose it’s a coincidence that a frugal meal is eaten for prosperity? Or is it another teaching moment, over and over again? Yay for traditions.

    • Yes – I think the frugality is part of the lesson for prosperity. Someone else commented along those lines about her father using a ham bone – on the first post on the New Year’s Day meal.

Anybody Else?
