As a kid I used to go to Backers Bakery. My mom worked around the corner. When I was young I used to go to work with her and she’d give me some money and tell me to walk up and get a Gingerbread Boy. Today I got to take my grandchildren there. Their eyes got big as they walked in the store with all of the beautifully decorated cakes, cookies and desserts. Such a magical place #atripdownmemorylane#tradition#mrsbackerspastryshop
Do you know where the tradition of giving away cigars at the birth of a baby came from?
The exact origins of the tradition are unknown, though it is believed that the gesture finds its heritage with Native American tribes that would exchange a primitive cigar to celebrate the birth of a child.
Others believe that the tradition stems from anxious fathers during the days when women gave birth at home and fathers were kept away from the room. Once the baby was born, the men could celebrate with friends and family by smoking in the parlor.
Today, we still think candy cigars make a traditional addition to dessert tables and candy buffets!
GALENTINE’S DAY | It started as a celebration of Leslie Knope’s ladyfriends. But the pseudo-holiday has caught on as a way to celebrate that most common and yet most unremarked-upon of things: female friendship.
It started as fiction. In a 2010 episode of @nbcparksandrec , Leslie, creative and crafty and bursting with kindness for the people she loves, invented a way to do something American culture hadn’t traditionally been too good at doing: celebrating, in an official capacity, the joys of female friendship. Leslie set Galentine’s Day as a festival that would fall, each year, on February 13: Valentine’s Day-eve. And she decided that the festivities—though the real point of it all is simply to celebrate the platonic love that exists among ladyfriends—should take the form of the thing that has brought women together for decades: a long and boozy brunch.
We’ve decided to throw a #galentinesday#pajamaparty

One of my favourite things about Morocco is their way of drinking tea. It's not just tea. There's tradition surrounding it. The process of brewing tea, serving it is carried out with great care and signifies friendship and hospitality. Here's a photo of me serving tea the Moroccan way for the first time 4 years ago. I still do this at home, when my friends are over, it's like meditation for me. Love it 😍
On Chinese New Year 🧧 morning, it’s tradition for us Chans to do a tea ceremony where we serve tea to our parents and exchange blessings and presents (ang pows, too). 🧧
Mom wrote down a whole list of Cantonese phrases this time around, some we’ve never heard of before! 🧧
Hope you guys had a blessed, auspicious one! 🧧
Kong Hei Fatt Choy! 🧧
Moment paling seru saat imlek adalah bagi2 angpao dan silaturahmi dengan keluarga..
Anak-anak kecil paling bahagia karena bisa dapat bermain2 bersama dan bisa belanja sepuasnya.. Imlek atau tahun baru cina sebenarnya ritual keagamaan budha, tetapi sudah mendarah daging menjadi tradisi warga thionghua, walaupun sekarang ini warga thionghua di Indonesia telah beragama kristen, katolik, hindu dan islam..
Budaya kue keranjang sudah luntur, seharusnya imlek juga disertai hadirnya kue keranjang, selain dominan warna merah dan gold..
HAPPY CHINESS NEW YEAR
I love our tradition! My parents get all of us tickets to see Disney on Ice as a Christmas gift each year.
The girls are excited each year and Ralston was super excited for his first time to see “Disney on Icy Skates” in person. ⛸💙 #disneyonice#enchantmentonice#tradition#family
