Traditions Menu

With so much pop culture, media, and technology bringing us closer together and telling us we are the same - why have we not lost our traditions?

Traditions are important. Traditioal food, clothing, celebrations, music, and even toys help define us. They remind us of our past, they comfort us, give us a sense of order, unity, strengthen our society, and create a shared identity.

Students in Japan, Thailand, and USA share some of the traditions that have been handed down to them.
