New Hampshire’s Best Christmas Traditions, Recipes and Stories (Recap)

Next year this blog (Cow Hampshire) will celebrate its 15th year. That is a gloriously long time for a genealogy blog to be around. At this point it is easy for me to have forgotten every single topic I’ve written about, and no serious sin for me wanting to republish some of them.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to offer a compilation of all the great Christmas posts of the past. No doubt you will find some you have missed. Topics focus mostly on traditions, decorations, poetry, and food of the past all with a New Hampshire connection.

If you are a genealogist, in order to understand your ancestors, you must study how they lived. Here is your opportunity!  Whatever your belief, however you spend the next few weeks, I wish you all a joyous, and safe holiday.

  1. I’ll be ending my 7th soon and going into the 8th year of blogging. Only half as long as you. I understand wanting to share links or republish old pieces. I’ll definitely have to check out some of your earliest ones. Merry Christmas, Janice.

      Cathy, thank you for being a faithful follower of my blog stories. Before I write about a “theme” these days I go back to see what I have already written about (not wanting to repeat myself). When it comes to Christmas, I’ve written so many stories already that it was easier this year to continue my ongoing research and post a “recap” of the past. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Janice, and that 2021 brings you good health and lots of joy.
