Having a potluck is very American Fifties. But this gathering on Good Friday was with some of my favorite International friends. Margit, holding the bottle of "Pecscetes Barack Palinka" (Hungarian apricot brandy) told us how this special drink has been a part of many Hungarian celebrations! But the best part of the evening was gathering with bowls of Hungarian fish soup and other yummy foods... and sharing memories of our childhood Easters, in Hungary, Germany, Argentina, Ireland, UK and the US! So many different Easter traditions back in the fifties and sixties!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
