Years ago the Sunday newspaper was almost a family event. For some families either during breakfast or after it was time to read the newspapers and particularly the comics. Everyone loved to pour over the Sunday magazine, the coupons, and the arguing as to who could read the comics first was always a trigger point. Even as an adult, my late husband would trot off to the store to buy the newspaper while I made breakfast. Then if was a few hours of interesting reading and fun. It’s a shame that tradition doesn’t exist anymore. It was a nice family time with enjoyment. The Sunday traditional dinner doesn’t really exist anymore either. I always liked it as we could discuss the past week and what was coming up. There are still traditional foods that I make on Sundays and holidays that were family favorites particularly my late father-in-law. He loved roast beef for Christmas and New Year’s which was a football game day, he liked a ham and lemon meringue pie all of which I made from scratch and still do. Everything is online which I think reduces the reading time for everyone. Many of us improved our reading skills by reading the comics. As a child I was never allowed to read comic books. I didn’t buy them for my own children either. The best part about comics is that it is fun reading and it makes us laugh. Many of the heroes in the comic books became real on the big screen and even on TV. For example, superman was on the black and white TV, in comic books and eventually in the movies. Of course, Batman became bigger than life when color TV came along and he was also in the movies. How do you feel about traditions?
