We have some “special-special” traditions for various mornings during the year. You know, more than just “gee, eggs would be nice this morning.” These are more breakfasts that accompany holidays or other special days during the year.
- Birthdays – A big stack of pancakes with candles. What’s better than starting out your birthday with pancakes, sometimes rainbow if I’m feeling inventive, homemade maple syrup and candles? Nothing. Nothing at all.
- Halloween – We have orange pancakes with chocolate chips (for “spiders baked in”). This year, however, we’re trying pumpkin pancakes. Mmm.
- St. Patrick’s Day – Obviously green pancakes.Are you catching our theme?
- Christmas – This one will be hard this year. Normally, we have a big eggs, toast, bacon and juice meal with my grandparents, prepared by my grandfather. This year will be our first Christmas without him, and I really don’t imagine we’ll make it through the morning without tears.
- And sometimes on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, respectively, we do a fun kids-help-serve-the-honoree morning where that person gets to choose. Super fun.
