It’s Memorial Day weekend and while most are out enjoying sunshine, pools and barbecue, it’s a good time to reflect on our history and what this day is actually about. This week, we look at the history of Memorial Day and some of the lesser known stories of those who have died serving our country.
It’s Easter… and April Fool’s Day. This week, we taste some of the random candy that only comes at Easter, chat about family Easter traditions and Mike shares some WTF facts about Peeps!
We’re picking up our chat about old family holiday traditions – and who better to talk to about it than our Moms?! Our Moms take over the storytelling this week as they give us a rundown on what we were like as kids, what we wanted for Christmas and the lengths they went to to make our holidays special. A warning for parents: while there’s nothing explicit in this episode, it’s not one you’ll want to listen to with your kids (if you know what we mean)!
We take a quick trip down memory lane as we talk about some of the traditions our families had during the holiday season and the history behind some of the places we visited. True stories of planes crashing into churches, fires destroying buildings where you now shop and Mike teases us about “The Tree Whisperer.”
We discuss Halloween history and traditions. Where did Halloween and jack-o-lanterns come from? Family costumes and Halloween memories from growing up. And, of course, our favorite scary movies.
