Clothes and toys, recipes and jokes, advice and prejudice: we all have to handle all sorts of hand-me-downs every day. Tell us about some of the meaningful hand-me-downs in your life.
I think all of these things should be hand-me-downs as long as they are good and still hold some value and are suited for the situation. The only things I wouldn’t want to be handed down are prejudices & clothes; best to be avoided but in some families due to shortage of money or some other stuff like that. Even if they have money parents may want to have kids pass on their clothes to their younger siblings atleast in their formative years. Which is ok.
Everything else is fine. Toys, recipes are very important and certainly jokes – the good ones especially. I remember a few like some bad jokes that has lasted 2 or 3 generations.
