Although I haven’t been very good at it lately, every Friday night I try to post a term of Soap Opera Jargon. We have a special term tonight in honor of Bauer BBQ Week. Find more on the Soap Opera Jargon page.

Tradition – Non-soap fans don’t always appreciate what an important role tradition plays in soap operas. On a soap opera not only is watching a particular soap or a particular network’s soaps handed down as a family tradition, our extended soap families also have traditions that we look forward to each year. The Bauer BBQ was a tradition that everyone look forward to each year on Guiding Light. Other traditions have to do with Christmas or other events around the year. These yearly touchstones often draw in even lapsed viewers to see this year’s version.
