Tradition. What makes a tradition? I try to think of traditions we had growing up and nothing leaps out to me.
With my own family, I try to concentrate on making the memories and being present. Things that might be considered traditions are we put our Christmas Tree the weekend of Veterans Day. We tend to go to Disney for Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. I sometimes make things that evoke memories of my grandparents but I am not swayed one way or another.
I have items that remind me of family but I try to share their stories and make them become real to them and not just names with dates.
I sometimes people get so wrapped in those traditions that they are not able to change and see what can be.
