I hate tradition. I really do. I don't get it. Why do you bother doing something just because a date dictates so? Sounds very "confining".
For example, Thanksgiving. Why do people go home since, for the most part, people find their families not the best to hang around during these times. We had 3 people over for dinner. We kept laughing the entire time. I had a wonderful night.
I didn't even feel cheated that I worked a full day the next day.
So, why bother? Why bother with the insanity of the holidays? Why bother staying with a bunch of people an entire weekend, when you can barely stand an entire day with them? Later.
