Tradition, on the other hand, is a more specific term. It’s often used to describe an individual event or practice, such as removing your shoes when entering your home.

Traditions are ideas and beliefs passed down from one generation to the next. They’re not rules, but rather guidelines. Each family within a culture can have its own unique traditions while sharing other common ones.

For example,in Ankore(Nkore)parents bless their daughters when getting married after a 40days of hiding them in a house for councilling and lectures about marriage by their Aunties (Okutindika Omugore omurinyaruju), wishing them happiness and success after confirmation of a dowry (Enjugano). This is a shared tradition that goes back many generations. It isn’t a law you must abide by, but most families celebrate it because they consider it a part of their culture. Yet different families may celebrate it in different ways. A tradition to go to a certain location, for instance, or to present a specific gift(Okuha ebiconco)

In short, traditions present a link to the past. They allow you to honor your ancestors and pay respect to certain aspects of your culture.

Thank you for learning our beautiful Ankore tradition.
