Galina Tikeeva, My Respect for My Ancestors
Galina says the following: I do not know much about my ancestors, but my mother used to say to me: ‘You have many ancestors. Commemorate them once or twice a year. Book well wishes for them at the temple. Offer food by throwing candies and biscuits to the roof’. So, once a year I book well wishes for my grandmother, grandfather, great grandfather, and other ancestors. I make food offerings at the temple and give sweets to children. I follow traditions.
