Many people consider dinner to be the epicenter of family life -- a time to close ranks and discuss the events of the day and simply connect. Others see it as simply a chance to refuel before dashing off to basketball practice, dates with friends or just anywhere other than the table.
What were dinners like at your home? Was strict etiquette enforced? Who cooked? Who served? Did you look forward to it or dread it? Did you say grace? Was there there punishment for non-attendance? Do you carry on the traditions with your own family?
