vita-herring

Being half Norwegian on New Year’s Eve meant eating herring at midnight. I could only tolerate the “packed in sour cream” variety but came to look forward to this tradition that came out of my mom’s heritage. I supposed it was for good luck. Mom never said why or how or anything about this – like most everything else about growing up Norwegian-American. Just one more thing for me to discover this year.
