Thanksgiving dinner is over and Hanukkah and Christmas are yet to be. It is very different now. As a child holidays included grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins.

Knock-Knock, Spit-Spit “Knock-knock, spit-spit?” Okay, I just dated myself, yet again. But that’s what we did – or said – in the face of wishing for good luck, or averting bad luck.

It wasn’t always that way, I used to know everyone’s number by heart, and some addresses, but that was long, long ago in those prehistoric pre-cellphone days.
