The fast-approaching holiday season has always been synonymous with spending time with family and creating new memories together around a beautifully set table and a delicious feast. Family members travel from near and far in an effort to get together right in time for those special holidays moments, and often times these gatherings are ones that we look forward to the most and countdown to for months in advance. Whether you celebrate at grandma’s house every single year, or the family takes turns hosting, these special moments are treasured for a lifetime.

While the holiday moments can be the happiest of times, sometimes they can also carry a note of sadness when older relatives pass on and are no longer around. Our grandparents, aunts, uncles and parents teach us the importance of the holidays and pass down traditions that make each dinner special and personal. It can be difficult to enjoy the festive season when certain people aren’t around, but this is also an opportunity to celebrate their memory and continue to share the traditions they loved with young cousins, kids, nephews and nieces.

As the years quickly pass us by with the speed of lightning, it’s important to cherish the moments we have with our loved ones, especially during the extra special holiday season. For 100 years Thermador has been in the kitchens of culinary enthusiasts acting as the ultimate supporting cast in creating delicious feasts for memorable family and holiday moments, and as we kick off a second century of innovation and design, we look forward to being in your kitchen during your favorite holidays!
