Traditions are what bring us together and keep us together, especially during the holiday season. Many have traditions they love to share with others, while some have traditions that are passed down from generation to generation.
This month’s writing theme is Tradition. What are yours? Do you like them or loathe them? Is there a tradition you know of that you would like to adopt?
Example: As an example I’ll tell you about a tradition we have in our family that started the Christmas of 1998.
Due to one of my sister’s indecisiveness, our father thought it would be funny to play a prank on her for Christmas that year. He got a large box, wrapped it and had everyone shake it to guess what was inside. To me it felt like bouncy balls, but that would be a silly gift for her.
What was inside… well I won’t tell you, but we have been passing it around ever sense. Each year my sisters and I will gift it to another sister and disguise it within the gift like my dad did.
It’s become a tradition in our family to pass this thing around each year and come up with different ways to disguise it.
