Today I want to talk about traditions. What are traditions? Traditions are the handing down of opinions, doctrines, practices, rites and customs that are passed on from generation to generation. When my husband and I first got married we used to alternate between families’ in order to celebrate our respective traditional holidays. He had traditions that he grew up with and I had traditions that I wanted to follow.
How do you break away from traditions without breaking them all together? You incorporate a little of his-story and a little of your-story to find the value in those celebrated traditions.
It may seem that traditions are unraveling, but they are not. It is what links the past to the future allowing your family the chance to create traditions of your own.
