So my dad told me a story about a week and a half ago about how there is this family Christmas tradition of eating Frango mints or something on Christmas eve. Apparently he used get these from Nordstrom. Naturally I ran out and ordered 3 boxes hoping one of them would make it for Christmas and exactly one has and will make it for Christmas.
Here’s the problem, none of his children know anything about this “family tradition,” and neither does his ex-wife, that’s my mom. We have no idea what he’s talking about. I didn’t even know about this brand of chocolate until I was in my 30s and my sister now on the East Coast (I’m West) started telling me about brands that are popular over there and things like people go to Dunkin Donuts for coffee not donuts.
Anyway, in my natural sarcastic self I told my he can’t call that a family tradition. For one thing, he didn’t pass it down and for another, it didn’t happen.
He’s still getting a box on Christmas eve though since he seems fond of them.
I also wonder if my dad is losing his mind, like taking someone else’s story and transposing himself into it.
