A lot has changed for President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in the last few months, but Jill recently said that they try to keep one tradition alive: having dinner together every night.
In an interview with Kelly Clarkson, Jill said she and the president make sure to sit down and talk at dinner. Jill also added that they make sure to keep technology out of the picture so that they can focus on each other before they both head off to do more work for the rest of the night.
“He’s so busy, I’m so busy, but we do keep dinner. We have dinner together, no phones—the phones have to be off—and now we’re having dinner in this beautiful home, and there’s a fireplace in the dining room, and they light the fire, and we just sit and talk for a while,” she said.
Jill added that they’re also keeping weekly Sunday night dinners with the family as a tradition, though she acknowledged it’s been pretty busy as of late. And it seems to have stuck too, as her granddaughters recently said they’ve taken up the helm and have started having them too.
“It was funny, recently, my granddaughters called me and said, Nana—and you know, I love to have a beautiful table with candles and flowers or whatever I can find to put on it—and they said, ‘Nana, we’re making our own dinner, and we’re doing it Nana style. We have our candles.’ And so, some of it has permeated. I hope they continue on the traditions too,” she added.
