On Traditions


I like traditions.

It creates a sense of belonging and connects us to our past, to our ancestors and their lives. Tradition defines the values and beliefs that were dear to our parents, grandparents and maybe great-grandparents, and that we still hold close to our hearts. Like family. And faith. One of the oldest traditions I could think of was from my grandparents. It was praying the Angelus every evening at 6:00 p.m., followed by the rosary. It seemed that my grandmother's entire household prayed together.

Especially during the holidays, these traditions come to life as we begin to celebrate another new year with our families. We recognize these things that have been passed down. What traditions did you have in your childhood that you still continue to this day?
