I love traditions!

I love traditions! This is a Holi festival tradition handed down from our forefathers, one generation to the next. It is another tradition like many others in our family, to keep us and our children and our grandchildren happy. It is the tradition of blessing children with Perlu-Sugar Candy Garlands in the evening of Holi festival day. We follow all these traditions mostly without reflection as to why it was adopted in the first place. It is followed simply out of respect for the elders, love for the well being of our children and grandchildren. We have never broken our family traditions and I hope our children too would never; in the name of turbulent modernity.
