Explore the Importance of Family Traditions

What Are Your Family Traditions?

     The movie clip below is a true story of a young boy named Jared McCloud who wants to learn how to play the bagpipes. His persistence in learning how to play the bagpipes, much to the annoyance for the family and the neighborhood, gradually gives way to the family wanting to learn more about their Scottish heritage. It is so important not to forget that heritage that we come from, and you don't even have to learn to play bagpipes to do so.

     Family traditions help to bind generations together, whether it be Christmas, foods, annual festivities, or whatever other traditions. Most every family has their traditions. Can you think of the traditions that have been passed down to you from your families, and now those traditions that you are passing on to your posterity?
