Anna and Maria have traditions on the mind coming out of the holiday season, so for this week’s episode they dive into the topic and explore their own relationships with tradition. Some of the questions they ask, and attempt to answer: What makes a tradition a tradition, and in what ways do traditions add value to our lives? How do our traditions evolve with us as we change and grow, and when is it time to let them go? Why did Maria wear plaid on the same day every year until she was 18? They also discuss why traditions may be particularly useful for young adults in periods of transition, and the ways that traditions can help us be more mindful and present. Our hosts wrap up, unsurprisingly, with a quote and a dose of PMA.
