As a child, like most children, memories of playing at friends homes was like this;
1. I was always aware of what was different.
2. I would always tell my Mom what we needed if we did not have it. ie; the Christmas tree with all white birds and gold ribbons, white lights. (We had an array of ornaments)
3. Can you make me what Mrs. _____ made for dinner?
4. Can you buy me this_*______.
5. Can we have wallpaper?
One afternoon at my friends home we ate “Matzoh.” I always like to try different things. Her Mom made us Matzoh Ball Soup and when I got home, I told my Mom that she needed to learn how to make that. She did. I was fascinated to learn about other religions, cultures and their traditions.
It’s that time. Passover. So, save me some Matzoh and Matzoh Ball Soup for this catholic gal.
That’s my matzoh memory.
What are some of your earliest memories from childhood?
