"Traditions exist due to folks being impressed by how their forebears did things; and, accordingly, taking this attitude is, I feel, vital for the cause of maintaining a nice multicultural-world, against the forces of globalisation/Americanisation – a cause which U.S. citizens themselves should support" (from here). As an English repat., I find plenty of good (i.e., I'm "impressed") in OUR OWN good traditions, and keep practising/performing some myself. Have you folks also heard it said that travel abroad tends to make people wish to practise their own culture more, as well as APPRECIATING others more..?
