The Indextrious Reader has come up with a meme in which one lists the first line of each month’s blog posts for the past year to see what it tells you about the past year.

My dear grandfather’s birthday was November 11th, 1892, and he was always very proud that WWI, that war to end all wars, ended on his 26th birthday.
Many of the Hungarian customs surrounding Advent and Christmas are a little different from the ones practiced in the North America and I always enjoyed learning about them and doing them, even if some were a bit labor intensive when my three children were growing up.
