Every family has their traditions. And every parent remembers that one special thing their parents used to do for them when they were little. For some, it is baking grandmas’ secret cookie recipe, while for others it might be a certain storybook at bedtime.
The memories, the nostalgia, the future
Growing up I remember my mum baking the best jam drops and ANZAC biscuits, recipes that I now use for my kids. The smell when they are pulled out of the oven takes me straight back to my childhood.
Fast forward to today, I continue another tradition. Every night I read the kids a bedtime story and 9 times out of 10, it is a May Gibbs Gumnut Babies book. Just like me, my kids will reminisce about the tales and adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.
The memory of mum sitting on the edge of the bed while we all huddle around her, listening to the funny voices and life lessons as she reads the May Gibbs classics. Unfortunately, I don’t have a copy of the original books from my childhood but being very avid campers, my girls love the adventures of Tales From the Camp Fire.
One hundred year anniversary of May Gibbs Snugglepot and Cuddlepie
It is no surprise that one hundred years on, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie are just as adored as they ever were. Past generations have enjoyed them and by keeping up traditions like these, we are keeping these stories alive for future generations.
