Today’s Word: keep with tradition

☆  keep with tradition  伝統を守る


If you keep with tradition, it means you follow what is suitable or right for that situation. A funny example I have of keeping with tradition is my family at Christmas time. Since we are actually British by birth, and my parents spent a lot of their life in England, we keep with tradition at Christmas time.

What does this mean? Well, it means that even though it is summer in Australia (not winter like it is in England) we have a traditional Christmas meal. This meal is roast turkey, roast ham, roast vegetables… in other words, we eat a hot meal. In England, this is wonderful, it warms you up and tastes delicious. In Australia, it makes you sweat because it is usually around 30 degrees on Christmas day! I like to keep with tradition, but sometimes I’d just like a salad on Christmas day! Ha ha 🙂
