Cribbage

The classic card game of Cribbage holds a special place in our family. Nearly all of us learned the game – and how to talk trash during the game – from our grandmother, Pearl, over the course of several decades. We honor her by playing a Christmas Day tournament every year, with the winner earning bragging rights and their name on the champions’ plaque.
