Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?
I mostly try to separate personal things from my stories. So, most of my stores actually does not reflect a lot of my family's own traditions and/or customs. When thinking about it, I am not even sure if my family have any traditions of our own. I know through adoption, our traditions have been borrowed for the most part. This is a question that had me thinking though; that I stopped to review my work to see if I do include some of my own traditions or customs. If I do, it is purely unintentional because I prefer to separate myself and experiment with different traditions that is contrast to mines. Just because my characters behave this way or does something, that doesn't mean I personally do it or I have the same views.
