I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “culture.” We would love to have you join us.
Culture=”the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious or social group;” “the set of shared attitudes, values goals and practices that characterizes an institution or organization.” (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
Kuchen, knoephla soup, dumplings….These are just some of my favorite foods growing up. Store bought kuchen is just not the same as Grandmas homemade kuchen. Knoephla soup warms my belly and is one of my favorite comfort foods when I’m sad.
These food items are a representation of the culture my grandparents (my dads parents) came from. They are German Russians. Germans who came over from Russia. I love learning about our culture….where we come from.
Last summer in NYC, we toured Ellis Island. I remember wondering what it must have been like to come over from Germany. Grandpa would have been a young boy.
My sister can be stubborn….a very German Russian trait. What traits do you carry from your families culture? Our cultures tell a lot about where we come from.
