As my holiday gift to you, allow me to share a funny, touching story that originally aired on The Otter Story Hour’s show: Family Feast. Every Christmas, visions of tamales dance in my head. Actually, I eat tamales year-round, maybe because I’m a Mexican who grew up in Los Angeles. But don’t let that fool you – I have a fraught relationship with tamales, thanks to my family. Want to know what I mean? Go to the following Facebook link for a video of that November 2020 Show. You can find my story, The Tamale Incident, at 50:06, or grab snacks and watch the whole show as several delightful storytellers share tales of feasting.
