Teaching your own cultural heritage to your children helps them to have a sense of belonging and helps them to know something of their ancestors, if only in a small way.
Americans have a diverse heritage. We come from so many countries all over the world, but we embrace a culture of freedom and representative government.
As we enjoy this wonderful Christmas season, it's fun to see all the traditions that combine from divergent cultures, to make this such a wonderful country.
What traditions do you enjoy from your cultural heritage?
