tradition

I'm not much for resolutions.
Some years I make lists of goals, usually they are abandoned by Feb 3.

I saw a few people choose a word for the year.
I like this idea, so I'm doing it too.


tra·di·tion [truh-dish-uhn] noun


1. the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, especially by word of mouth or by practice: a story that has come down to us by popular tradition.
2. something that is handed down: the traditions of the Eskimos.
3. a long-established or inherited way of thinking or acting: The rebellious students wanted to break with tradition.
4. a continuing pattern of culture beliefs or practices.
5. a customary or characteristic method or manner: The winner took a victory lap in the usual track tradition.


And, because I cannot hear the word 'tradition' without hearing Topol; I'll leave you with a Fiddler on the Roof clip.
