We're a bit past the holiday hubbub, but I thought it still worth sharing about a family holiday tradition. Each year, the Hallberg Family gathers to make Swedish potato sausage. Each family brings the supplies to make enough sausage to feed their branch of the family at Christmas. This year we made over 100 pounds of sausage in three hours. While the sausage making is the ostensible goal of the gathering, the annual opportunity to reconnect and reminisce with other branches of the family is just as treasured.
