Hickory Farms Celebrates Tradition and Charitable Giving #HickoryTradition

Why do holiday traditions matter?   I think that traditions bind a family together. It gives everyone something to look forward to over the year.  The foundation that memories are made from. My older children are teenagers and my youngest is 5 years old.  I know that the traditions that we've created together are important to them. As I've discontinued a few and got unhappy responses I have realized that they really do  look forward to them . It gives them a childhood bond and a way to celebrate past, present and future as siblings .  I absolutely love that the older kids are now doing the things that I started with them with their younger brother.   One of our favorite traditions is gathering with family and friends on Christmas Eve.  We have Christmas dinner but also all kinds of snacks and appetizers.  Christmas Eve is an all day affair in our family.  One of our favorite additions to the feast is Hickory Farms the guys in our family are very keen on the summer sausages.   For more than 60 years Hickory Farms has been providing holiday shoppers with options that not only present beautifully, but also taste delicious.
