How does a quirk or new idea evolve into a habit that turns into a routine which tranforms into a custom that eventually becomes a tradition?
I’ve never seen a tradition start.
note: I’m sure people were sticking all sorts of things on top of their Christmas trees at one time.
double note: I habitually pre-order one of these cakes for Christmas: it’s a tradition that I don’t get to eat any of the good stuff on top … it’s a generational hazard of sorts.
random note to myself: learn to whine and cry better when the cake comes out.
triple note: one of these years I’m going to cut that stupid cake with the little elf holding the handsaw.

You usually find a sniff of turkey on Christmas, but you get skunked once in Brazil in 2006. It’s not too bad … you’re on the beach in Brazil!
