Do you have stories about your family? Current and Past? Are they worth keeping? Yes , they are worth keeping. The value of family traditions is not one that you can put a price on. For the vast majority of families they do not become concerned about these facts until it is to late.
Most of us grew up with things going around us that we do not even realize were family traditions that we should have been keeping for future generations. Families have traditions that are done during the holidays just, because it has always been done that way. An example of this is in my own family where my father in law hides a ornament that is a pickle in among all the other ornaments. The grandchildren are all brought into the room to locate the pickle. First one to identify it's location wins a small prize. This tradition traces it origin to German speaking people. My father in law remembers doing it as a small child growing up.
Another common area of happiness for people is food. No matter weather you are Swedish, English or the many other ethnic backgrounds we all have special recipes. These are the traditions we as the current generation should be working to preserve. Future generations need to know the traditions of our ancestors.
This holiday season pay attention to things going on around you. Why do we do the things we do? They are important and need to be pass down to future generations.
