Celebrating Family Holiday Traditions

17 December 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST

Please note that RSVPs to attend the zoom close at 6pm New York time tomorrow, Wednesday December 16th. Details follow below.
In honor of the holidays, please join us for our fourth annual celebration and cultural exchange of different family holiday traditions.
Event: Celebrating Family Holiday Traditions
Date: Thursday, December 17, 2020
Time: 1-2PM New York Time (room kept open until 2:30)
Forum: To be held virtually. Web conference information will be sent out to registrants shortly after the RSVP window closes.
RSVP Link (closes at 6pm EST December 16th):   If you have already RSVP’d, no need to do so again.
Our annual committee tradition returns in a virtual format this year. The program will include personal reflections from guest speakers and an opportunity for attendees to share recipes, decorations, and foods from their family holiday traditions.  In the spirit of the holidays, the virtual meeting room will be kept open until 2:30 for socializing and networking. A flyer is attached.
Additionally, since we cannot share homemade foods this year, we are collecting recipes to share with each other from our family traditions. If you would like to participate, please submit recipes by form (note that submitting a recipe does not constitute an RSVP; please use the link above for that). Recipes can be submitted as links (such as from Spruce Eats, AllRecipes, or a read-only google doc) or by typing in ingredients and instructions. Recipes will be assembled and shared with the group. We hope this informal holiday cookbook may spread and inspire customs old and new. Thank you to those who have submitted already.
Best wishes,
NGO Committee on the Family New York
