This Week...Turkey and Traditions
What a week! Today is Saturday but since there were football and basketball games yesterday (Friday) I kept thinking yesterday was Saturday.
It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition. Henry James
There was a lot of talk about tradition on Thanksgiving, which was fun. Larry’s family tradition involved homemade rolls with a wrapped coin in the center. It has now become one for our family and the children look forward to it!!!
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Arthur M. Schlesinger
MInd you, we have to watch carefully as the youngest ones break open their rolls! We don’t want anyone to choke!
Growing up in Texas, there was the longstanding tradition of the Texas-Texas A&M game which was played on Thanksgiving Day.
Tradition is the illusion of permanence.
That ended in 2011 when A&M joined the SEC. It took me several years to recover.
Traditions are interesting. We hold onto them often for no other reason other than “it’s a tradition!” New ones enter our lives without us knowing it, and before you know it...a new tradition is born.
Tradition is a guide and not a jailer.
- Somerset Maugham
Have a fun weekend making new traditions.
