Holiday Tradition, Texas-Style

Posted on | January 1, 2014 | 5 Comments

Marcos Berrios was doing “mechanical work” in the backyard of his Conroe, Texas, home. On the front porch, he had a bunch of fireworks for the family’s New Year’s Eve celebration, and his 10-year-old daughter decided to start celebrating early by shooting roman candles.

And so in years to come, whenever the Berrios family gathers for the holidays, somebody is sure to say, “Hey, y’all, remember that year when Rebecca burned down the house?”

God bless Texas.
