    I...dont think its "tradition". IF anything it was probably a religous or spirtual ritual kinda thing that took place way back in history. Probably taking place in a small village thats going through misfortune...thats where the game would get the idea. Or so thats what I think.

    As far as traditions that I know of is the bowing for one, thats kinda of an obvious japanese tradition. I'm not sure if saying "Ittadaki masu" and "Gochisousama" before and after a meal is really an "tradition"...

    For instence some traditions can be 2000 years old while other traditions are only one year old.

    Ok there aren't many 1-year-old traditions and they don't stay a 1-year-old tradition for long.
    So things that could be considerd a 1-year-old tradition are first year anniversary of a organasation, company, school, building, ship, joint venture, project and so on, the first school trip of a newly build school could also be considerd a 1-year-old tradition.

    I can understand that some recent happenings might transform into a tradition (e.g. having some sort of ceremony on 11 September every year) but then again, it might not. We can't look into the future after all.

    Ok maybe i whas reffering more to a custum or a habit, but that dosn't mean al traditions are old.
    I would't call a tradition that 20 years old, an old tradition.
