The original meaning for ‘holiday’ was ‘holy day’ so I am using our grand daughter’s First Holy Communion Day for this theme. She had two days to dress up. The Day itself and a ‘Going Forth’ Mass the following week with a party included. Both occasions were happy and of course we were proud grand parents.
This is our grand daughter in the middle of the picture. She is wearing the dress that I sat up until the wee small hours sewing for her Aunt. Her mother in due course wore it for her First Communion. It is becoming a family heirloom. It has fitted them all but of varying lengths! It is 34 years old!
