I am all for tradition. I am not religious, but celebrate Christmas, and listen to Christmas carols. I watch the Packers on Sunday, and think back to my earliest memories, growing up in Wisconsin with the Pack.
But there are also traditions that should not persist. For example, I no longer fry up polish sausage to drizzle the grease with Karo Syrup on Wonder bread , as my family used to do during Packers games. Critical thinking has alerted me to the fact that this may not be a healthy tradition.
Here is a tradition that should die: a ritual exists whereby babies are dropped from a building 50 feet high. Video is available at the link below:
