I try to have healthy foods at any celebrations but have been too busy the past few years with dance and renovations to really pay attention to holidays. With the arrival of the grandbaby, I expect that to change!
I generally go to my parents for Thanksgiving. The weekend after I put up my tree. Christmas is always interesting - my ex and I still share the kids. They go to his house for a while and then to mine. Now, I also have to share with in laws. Fourth of July is another trip home - homemade peach ice cream, peach pie, BBQ.
Summer solstice is often time for a hafla with the belly dance troupe - generally because it is our slow season and the weather is warm! Middle eastern food, henna, and dance.
The other days are occasionally a reason for a party, but nothing really special.
The only restrictions any of us have in life are those we place on ourselves.
