Context: Z. grew up in Los Angeles and is currently a student at university.

Z: “There is a joke that my family always makes that you know you know the people would always say grace before a meal, someone will always say ‘let’s say grace’ and someone will say ‘grace’ and we will start eating.”

Reflection: I think that this is a great example of how traditions can be adapted and changed for a different purpose. The tradition of saying ‘grace’ before eating was no longer used by the family and is now referred to for comedy and remembrance.
