Only 2 things come from my maternal grandparents home in Parkchester. My grandmother would "read me" the tea leaves when the leaves were loose in the bottom of the cup. Not like today when they are bagged. Tea is still an everyday fact of life in our home. Then too is the holy water fount on the wall next to the front door. You always had to bless yourself when you left their home. We've had one in all our homes, still do. It gives you a head start on the day.
