Today we talked about the concept of tradition. We decided that traditions have many advantages, but sometimes they come with negative effects. We looked at winter traditions across the world, including Iceland, India, Thailand, and Austria. Then we talked about Sinterklaus and "Black Pete" in order to see the controversy that has emerged in the Netherlands. We used this idea to transition to the concept of modern vs. traditional, and then started to discuss how the 1920s is marked by this theme.
