As a child Sunday afternoons were either spent having a family over for dinner or being invited over to another church member’s home. If we were lucky they would have children around our age and a wonderful afternoon would be spent playing. This custom has for the most part disappeared in favour of going out for dinner at restaurants which are now open Sundays.
Today we revisited this old custom when we were invited to break bread with members of our church. The meal was wonderful and for Ruth, Emily and Haley the real treat happened after dinner when they were invited on a private hayride.
As a child what were your families Sunday afternoon traditions?
When was the last time you went out of a hayride or wondered around in the woods on a Sunday afternoon?
