Personally, I think traditions are our substitute for structure and anticipation. We as humans find comfort in knowing what is happening; hence, Grandma Always makes scalloped oysters, Brother ALWAYS carves the turkey...we as by-standers can find security in knowing we won't be asked upon to ful-till these obligations...

Thanks for the link to your older post. It was great food for thought. I felt pulled between my family and my in-laws in our early marriage. My goal is to not add to the pressure when they face those choices.
