We are people of tradition. There is no doubt about it, if we can turn something into somewhat of a ritual or tradition, the natural human tendency is to do so. That is why in churches, we so often get stuck doing the same things over and over, but nothing ever changes - we get stuck in our traditions. However, there are some traditions that are too good to pass up. There are some traditions that become special not because of what you do, but because of who you do it with. Katrina and I have a special tradition with Shawn and Miranda Allen in which we take each other out for our birthdays. Luckily, Shawn and Miranda's birthday is on the same day, so Katrina and I only have to pay for one dinner per year. We went to Buca di Peppo tonight in Franklin and shared a great meal with some great friends. Some traditions are too good to pass up, others should be canned. What are your traditions? Are there any worth getting rid of? Are there any worth beginning?
