Webster says that a  tradition is a story, a belief, a custom, a proverb, a practice, etc. handed down from generation to generation.  It also states that a traditionist is the upholder of tradition; a transmitter, recorder, or student of tradition.  

What tradition do you want to perpetuate into the future?

Consider the worth of your many traditions and measure them carefully.  Nurture the many potential traditionist in your families and give them the gift of a custom, a story, a practice,  a belief, etc. to pass on.  Keep the information of tradition available for generation after generation to grab onto and carry forward. 

Traditions keep our history and our worlds alive.  Pass them on!  Your generation depends on it!
