Christmas dinner during the Great Depression - turnips and cabbage.
My mother told me there was very little meat so they raised what they could and often ate fried onion sandwiches for dinner. It's strange how people that had so little were so grateful for every little thing they had and here we are today with so much and many of us appreciate nothing. We live in such a throw away society, if something is of no further use to us it's trash. So much has changed, and continues to change, even in my lifetime it makes your head swim when you think about it. I may be remembering things differently than how they actually were but when I think of how much kinder, accountable, responsible and grateful people used to be, it makes me wonder if all of the things we have now are really making our lives better.
