Old Home Week - I grew up hearing that term used, but often wondered the origin. Must be a Southern term, right? I did what every one in the world does - I "googled" it. Here is what Wikipedia had to say:
"Old Home Week is a practice that originated in the New England region of the United States similar to a holiday or festival. In its beginning in the 19th-20th century it involved a municipal effort to invite former residents of a village, town, or city - usually individuals who grew up in the municipality as children and moved elsewhere in adulthood - to visit the "Old Home", the parental household and home town."
We may not have had a physical Old/New Home Week at Hope Cottage over the past seven days, but we had a spiritual one of sorts.
