On the 31st of December 2015, a new series of guest posts was started on my blog, with the first post being New Year’s Eve Celebration Soviet Style by Dr Gulara Vincent. It will hopefully be the first contribution of many, and was a beautiful ending for 2015, and a great opening for Discovering Traditions.
Today, I want to officially publish my call for participation. I am looking for numerous bloggers to share their traditions. The posts won’t go up on a specific day of the week, rather on or around the date that the tradition is observed (if there is a specific date of course).
There are so many celebrations, customs and habits, which we have that I would love you to share. It does not matter if it is your Easter celebration, the way 1st Birthdays are honoured, or if you have a car-cleaning even that is the big things for you, or maybe your kid’s school does something odd at the yearly fair? Maybe you have a tradition when it comes to celebrating the full moon, or when you publish that new book or release the new song. Traditions are everywhere and I invite you to be my guest and share yours.
So, I ask you to get in touch over the year, when you come up with a tradition that you might want to share. It can be anything, really, a tradition you have or had, that you have witnessed, participated in, that you would like to adopt… One that your country, town, family, university, street, or club of sports car owners might have.
If you want and idea, then check out that first post by Gulara, or see what had been done for the advent calendar of 2015 (I will most probably do one in 2016 again, so that’s where your Christmas traditions will go).
If you want to participate then get in touch or have someone in mind who you think should participate then tell me about them or send them this way.
You can leave me a comment (I will send you an email to your commenting email address, or the one I might have), send me a message via the contact form, send me an email (if you have it), contact me via twitter.
Oh and a last note, don’t be shy (if you are of the shy ones and I think you should participate then I will probably message you and invite you), I am sure that you have or had a very interesting tradition, a memory or something in relation to a tradition to share.
