52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week 2: Winter
This week's personal genealogy & history challenge is to write about your winter memories from your childhood. My winters as a child are very similar to the winters I still experience as an adult. I live in the same town and neighborhood as I did back then. I live in western New York near Lake Ontario so we get snow!!! I hate snow, but as a child it wasn't as bad as I perceive it today. My childhood winter memories make me think of snowmen and sledding. We had and still have a great sledding hill. The hill is part of my family's property and many generations of my family have spent quality hours and trips going up and down the hill. A day spent on the hill always means hot cocoa when you are finished. Gotta love the cocoa!
