Meanings, definitions, concepts of daily use

From latin traditĭo, the tradition is the set of cultural assets that are transmitted from generation to generation within a community. It is the values, customs and events which are kept socially due to be considered valuable and that the company wants to transmit to new generations.
However, the tradition is something that we inherit and which is part of our identity. The art characteristic of a social group, like his music, dances and tales, is part of what is traditional. It is the same for gastronomy.
Folklore as well as everything about the conventional wisdom are part of the tradition. It is important to note that, often, the tradition is associated with conservatism insofar as it is to preserve in time certain values. In this sense, anything that is not traditional can be perceived as something strange or non-conventional.
However, sociologists report that tradition must be able to renovate and modernize in order to preserve its value and usefulness. In other words, a tradition can acquire new expressions without losing its essence.
Examples: eating a chocolate Easter egg, the log at Christmas, or the cake to celebrate the three kings, going to mass on Sunday or wear mourning are some of the traditions that are still respected in many countries.
Under the law, the tradition is the Act which is to legally transfer possession of something that is the subject of a contract.
