Tepatti Family traditions

Family traditions

1. Every year for my sisters, and my birthday the other person gets one present. My family has been doing this since i was born because my sister was born in 1992, and i was born in 1996. We do this so that the other person does not feel left out.

2. For my sisters, for mine, for my dads, for my moms birthday we always go out to a restaurant of the persons choosing. We have been doing this since my sister and i were born. We do this because it is supposed to be one of the persons birthday presents.


Family Traditions

3. My sister and I were not allowed to watch things like family guy or MTV until we were in high school. We had this tradition since when my sister turned 6, and when i turned 6. We did this because our parents believed that's when we would be mature enough to handle it.

4. Summer vacations, every 2 or three years our family goes on vacation to someplace like our previous ones to Washington D.C., Colorado, Maine, Italy, or Alaska. We have been doing this since i was 6, and my sister was 10.

5. At Thanksgiving we always have a big meal, and we pray before we eat our food, and every year my grandma comes over. We do this because our family is Methodist, and also grandma come over because she doesn't want to be alone on thanksgiving.


Family Traditions

6. Christmas, at Christmas even though my sister, and I, and my parents know we know that Santa is a imaginary figure, but every Christmas because we love to do it, and it gets us in the holiday spirit we still make cookies, and put them on a plate with Santa's face.

7. Every Easter we have a Easter egg hunt because it is a fun activity my sister and i always enjoyed as a kid. WE started this tradition when my sister was six, and then when i was 6 and have been doing since then.

8. Every Thanksgiving my family, and i watch the thanksgiving day football game because it something that interest all of us. We have been doing this ever since i took a interest in football when i was 10 years old.

9. A month before every Christmas when Hallmark has their Christmas stuff out, my family, and i go to Hallmark to pick out are own ordainment for the year, and the ordainment is supposed to mean something to us. We have been doing this since my sister was born, and when i was born.

Family Traditions

10. Every year for the Academy awards my parents, and I sit down, and watch them while also having a bunch of snacks out in front of us, and we also make guesses on who is going to win what category. We do this because it is always both a funny time, and we spend time together. WE have been doing this for about 5 years.


Future traditions for my family

1. When i have my own family one tradition i will try to start is i will let my kids choose one of their presents for their birthday, like i would take them to a store, and they would choose one thing they want straight from the shelf. I would want to do this because it would make my kids smile.


Future traditions for my family

2. Another tradition i want to do when i have a family is every Christmas morning after opening presents we would sit down, and watch a Christmas movie, that i would let my kids pick out. I would want to do this because, it would be another gift it would be giving to my kids on Christmas.

Connections with Chapter 3

The fact that my family has a big meal every thanksgiving, and pray before eating the food is a folkway because most families celebrate thanksgiving with a big meal, and most pray before eating the food.


Connections with Chapter 3

When my parents would let my sister or myself watch Family Guy until we were mature enough to handle the humor in it is an example of values because my parents believe it as a standard of behavior, and the decide the importance of it, and they think its not important.


Connections with chapter 3

Since every three years or sometimes back to back my family during the summer takes vacations, and i call this a more because its seems like it is essential for everyone, and a community because it allows them to relax, and not have to worry about things for a while.
