    I would define tradition as a recurring activity which a group of people choose to involve themselves in with some degree of regularity. Traditions are important because on a social level they promote group solidarity.

    I define tradition as something you like to do, that you would like to see continued into the future, because it has meaning to you.

    Traditions are the Socially allowed Practices ... in distinct situations ...

    These are important, for the humans, and a Society's Survival .

    Supposing, an Inuet hunter, were not the first, to chew the hunted Whale or Seal's blubber ... in an  Eskimo Tradition ... in greater probability, he may not be able to face the hardships of return travel, and its Purpose ... the community's Good.

    Blubber, is "therefore" Good, in the Inuet tradition.
