traditional day

A co-worker  happened to mention that her family has a Friday night tradition: they gather together for pizza and a movie. Hey, we like pizza and movies, and we’re always in on Friday nights anyway. We decided this was a tradition our family should take on too. So we explained to Flynn what a tradition was. He was a little fuzzy on the concept, but he did understand that ours would include pizza and movies, so he was on board. We decided to start the following Friday.

Every day that followed this conversation, Flynn asked, “It is traditional day yet?”

“You mean, pizza and movies? Our Friday tradition?” we tried to correct him.

“Yes, that’s what I said. You’re not listening to me. I said ‘traditional day.'”

He’s not exactly wrong. What’s more traditional in our native culture than takeout pizza and a good picture show?  Frozen. Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Wizard of Oz. Sometimes we even get our pizza from Dominos or Little Caesar’s.

    Happy Traditional Day to you, too!! Our family has been doing exactly the same thing for a few years now, always pizza and a movie for the kids on Fridays (plus a few cocktails for mom and dad). I recently passed the FSOA, so here’s hoping we can carry on celebrating Traditional Day wherever we end up.

    Love your blog.

    Thanks! For now, we’re waiting on clearances while fantasizing about first postings. What I’m hearing from the kids is that so long as there are both elephants and monkeys, everyone should be happy . . .

    We have the same tradition – but the children aren’t invited :). We do watch a movie together as a family on Saturday, however.
