Reader Feedback:Nostalgia for tradition returns

Thank you Mr Reynolds for allowing me to enjoy a Slovak Christmas briefly through your well-written essay. My grandparents are from Slovakia and I recognised many of the traditions in your article. I am thinking of visiting my relatives again there and spending more time with them where the life is more simple and less commercialised.
