My favorite traditions involve food. Latkes on Hanukkah, matzah ball soup on Passover, and Bubbe’s blintzes whenever her bubbelahs are in town (or for Shavuot, as is traditional for the holiday). Blintzes are sweet or savory, filled with jam or fruit, meat, potatoes, or in this case, cheese. I like mine in casserole form.
