Traditions

When I think of tradition, I think of “Fiddler on the Roof” where the main character guides his family through the Jewish traditions that have lasted for generations. Now in the 21st century we celebrate many traditions such as observing Christmas, celebrating the 4th of July, throwing rice at a wedding, eating turkey on Thanksgiving. I did not grow up in a family that had very many traditions although I do remember having reunions every once in a while where we learned about the Cooper/Bobo traditions. The Bobo name came from my paternal grandmother whose maiden name was Clara Bobo. That’s how I inherited the name Thomas Bobo Cooper. Because I was embarrassed by the Bobo, I was glad it was tucked in the middle and out of sight. Today, Dimitris and I have a few traditions. We go to Spinners to celebrate our anniversary. We go to church every Sunday morning that we are in town. One very important tradition is our visit every Friday afternoon to Taco Bell where he eats two shredded chicken burritos, and I have a Mexican pizza. We’ll see you there at noon today. I love traditions, especially food traditions.
