We’re resuming the family history postings. I’ve enjoyed interacting with all our readers and getting to know them better during our Winter break. The next series of postings focuses on the Muro family. Posting no. 23 started out as a regular review of our family tree and soon Uncle Sammy and I got into a discussion of the Italian celebration of Name Days.
We hope you’ll enjoy this development in the course of the posting. It provided a good way for us to reconnect to the past and create a new custom in our lives. Now, in addition to our birthdays, Uncle Sammy and I will celebrate our Name Days. It brings back many happy memories of our childhood education when we attended religious instruction classes in the Catholic church.
