Carin comments on Dec 4, 2018:
I'm half Dutch & spent many Xmases in the Netherlands with my grandparents & family. One cool thing about it back then (I've been told it's changed a bit) is that Dec. 25th was mainly a religious holiday & not all that exciting, though they still had the tree up & had a nice meal & all. But the gift giving & all that happened much earlier--Dec 5th! I believe that may be the catholic saint day of Saint Nicholas...not sure. Anyway he's called Sinterklaas there & he rides a horse, very dignified in a red bishops robe & hat. No fat & jolly guy dropping down the chimney. He is accompanied by his servant, Swarte Piet (Black Pete) & arrives by boat from Spain to give the kids gifts. The night of December 4th we had to polish our shoes very well & put them out, along with an apple for his horse. If he saw that the shoes were nicely polished he'd fill them with candy, or maybe Black Pete did that--not sure. & there would be gifts under the tree, which was decorated with candles on little metal clips. I have some of those & they are lovely burning on the tree but tend to freak people out here in the US. The best thing about those Xmases is that when we returned home we'd still have American Xmas--what kid wouldn't want Xmas to come twice every year?? We do celebrate Sinterklaas Day at our house & I got wooden shoes for the kids to use to make it more "Dutch." Then they get to open ONE small gift from under the candle lit tree, & they usually want me to sing the 2 Dutch Xmas songs that I know. Now that I'm divorcing I'm especially glad that our family already celebrates 2 Xmases.
What is your favorite christmas time store-bought candy?
Carin comments on Dec 4, 2018:
Hershey's Kisses are my favorite, but they are also my year round favorite. Almond Rocca comes in close second.

Carin comments on Nov 27, 2018:
Yes, we just hear more about it. People used to be very averse to "airing the family's dirty laundry" by exposing any sorts of abuse, marital infidelity or other problems. Also, many sorts of abuse were not considered abuse in previous eras--wife beating was a acceptable way to maintain the family hierarchy & children were believed to benefit from whippings.

How do you tell children about death?
Carin comments on Nov 27, 2018:
I had a terrible time with my daughter! She would be sitting there playing with her toys, around age 3 or 4, then suddenly stop playing & wail "I don't want to die!" It was so awful--I felt utterly helpless as I don't want to either! I tried a few approaches--telling her about different ideas that people have about death & what, if anything, happens next. & I tried to make it sound like a normal part of life that is supposed to happen with every living thing, so it must be right. I was kind of going for a sense of completion...trying to be somewhat positive. I would point out a dead animal or insect & say "It was all done being a butterfly" or whatever it was. But I would also say that the squirrel or possum wasn't being careful crossing the road & didn't get to finish living... The eventual outcome (like after 2 very distressing years) was, I think, that between hearing about the idea of reincarnation as one option & my choice of words regarding bugs being "all done being bugs" was that she decided she would be reincarnated as some sort of animal. One kind of funny story--we were crossing the street & I said we needed to be careful not to be run over, & she rather too enthusiastically said "And then I can be a lion!!" Rather taken aback, I said that we were vegetarian & she'd have to eat dead animals if she were a lion. Her reply: "But I would have a lion mouth!" I guess I bumbled my way through--she's not locked away in a mental institution some where. She seems happy, capable & self confident, & she hiked the Appalachian Trail by herself in one season when she was 20.

Carin comments on Nov 27, 2018:
I'm proud to say I've never cheated on anyone. When I was very young, I overlooked cheating with one guy but have never put up with it since. People who do that have no morals & can never be trusted with anything, in my opinion & experience. I am no longer with my husband since finding out he cheated.

Carin comments on Nov 26, 2018:
The older you get, the less it seems to matter. I could not have imagined dating a guy 10 years younger than me when I was in my 20s (legal considerations aside) but there's not that much difference between people in their 40s & 50s--I think we've pretty much matured as much as we ever will by our 40s. My current guy is 11 years younger & I barely think about our age difference. We have so much in common!

Why do you find it awful making friends as an adult? I suppose I have nothing to compare to--my family moved so often when I was a kid that the only friends I have are the ones I made as an adult. Seems like childhood friends can easily grow apart. I saw that happen with my daughter & her friends. No hard feelings but no common interests to keep them together.

If you call it luck that all of us conversing here can read & write, can afford a computer or phone to access this site, & have electricity to power our electronics, then I do believe we were born lucky--most all of those things are due only to our good fortune to have been born to parents who lived in industrialized nations, & very little due to any exceptional efforts on our part. Other ways most of us were born into luck: your mother had access to prenatal care & nutritious food before you were born. You did not inherit any harmful genes or incur any disabilities. Your parents then saw to it that your medical, dental, educational, & nutritional needs were taken care of long before you were even aware of it.
