I know what I'm supposed to do during Christmas. The reason I know what to do is "tradition." One of my fondest traditions is going to Olson's Scandinavian deli in West Hollywood just 20 miles west of Downey. We go there for Bond-ost cheese and Swedish peas for Christmas Eve dinner.

My wife's family has been going to Olson's deli for three generations. Our children have said they will carry on the tradition with their families. What is it about traditions that keep us doing them? I know what it is about Bond-ost cheese and Swedish peas on Christmas eve, it's because they taste so good and its being part of a three generation tradition. What traditions do you carry on because you enjoy them?
