"Traditions allow us to recognise the lessons of history, enrich our lives and offer our inheritance to the future.

Local, regional and national traditions retain the uniqueness  of communities in the advance of globalisation.

Through tradition we can preserve our sense of identity and counteract social alienation. People must have the freedom to maintain their traditions."
