Understanding Holiday Traditions
The origin of many holidays may surprise you. How they got started and why may not be what you expected. It is interesting to find out how each holiday tradition came about. Our children have fun celebrating April Fools Day or Halloween but what was the inspiration behind each one?
Is it true that the Puritans actually stopped the Americans from celebrating Christmas? Was it really outlawed? Who were the first people who placed flowers on the graves of the soldiers as a Memorial and when was the first Juneteenth actually celebrated? The answers to these questions may be surprising. The beginnings of each American Holiday have an interesting story to tell.

In this autobiography, I talk about the trials I faced when I had scoliosis… the casts and operations that lasted for three years. Attending college, serving as a young missionary, and falling in love were years to remember.
Why did I call this book “Never Too Late To Dream?” Every accomplishment I achieved happened after I turned 50. After the age of 50, I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre and Arts, I performed for a concert series and made a CD, and I became an author. I also toured the United States, teaching people how to write their biographies. I believe it is never too late to achieve your dreams. These were years to remember.
