    The word tradition comes from the Latin traditio which means “giving up, delivering up, surrendering.” In English it means

    1.handing down from generation to generation of opinions, beliefs customs etc…
    2.Opinions, beliefs, customs etc handed down. This transmission of infromation and practices is usually oral.

    3.Anything bound up with, or continuing in the life of a family, community, etc
    Tradition is a means of transferring knowledge into the present from the past. Some traditions can be traced back to their origins, some are just presumed to be ancient. They were deliberately invented for one reason or another, often to highlight or enhance the importance of a certain institution. It’s generally common belief in the Bagandas society that traditions have to stay unaltered, as they are the part of the bonds that hold the society’s tissue together.

    We start off with the lengthy tradition of welcoming and greeting visitors, especially long lost loved ones. This includes screams, tears, hugs, handshakes before we get down to sharing news.
