I am a second-generation U.S. citizen and so proud of my Slovak heritage on four sides of my grandparents - and never more so than on Christmas Eve as I keep alive the traditions passed down from my parents - almost exactly as described in your article. I even send oblátky (waffles) to all my brothers all over America to remind them to do the same. Those are the happiest moments of my Christmas. All the best.
