  1. I think that tradition in your family and countries should try to be preserved... when we are younger most don't know the importance of tradition.... it seems it comes with age ;)

  2. I agree understanding the importance of tradition comes with age. I also think children really love traditions and routine and as a parent or grandparent it's go good to create those traditions depending on what is important to you and your own family.
