Having Traditions

Traditions can be fun and make life feel better. Join our brainstorming session to become inspired to start your own traditions, from apple-picking; the holiday party; the army buddy reunion; the Vermont Mud Race; to maple syrup on the first snow; and sampling away at The Faith Middleton Show's annual Martini Competition. (Do you know how strange it is to refer to yourself in the third person?)

We explore why traditions matter to us, even crazy ones; there are reasons why we're somehow not bored by doing the same thing year after year. And that explains turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, a meal that continues to mystify the French.

It's not too late to start your own tradition. Let us inspire you.
