I think my hang up is when people use the term "old fashioned". For anything. What exactly does that mean?
When my son was born, all the new mommies were going thru the 'fad' of "We're going to pick an old-fashioned name!" Well, if everyone TODAY is using the name, doesnt' that make it the modern name? (So among all the Jerimiah's and Zachariah's being born then, I named my son "john". Plain John" Good ole, regular all american "john"!
I've seen threads where buttercream as been defined as the "old fashioned way" to decorate a cake. Been doing BC-only for 25 years .... I'll probably do it for another 25. (Pry that decorating bag out of my cold dead hands!) So..... What's the "old fashioned" part? It's still being done today!
Likewise when I get brides who claim "we're non-traditional!" I lean back and ask them: You wearing a pretty white dress? You wearing a tux? Church? Music? Friends standing up with you all dressed alike? Dad giving you away? Big party afterwards? Gifts? Now that's a tradition I KNOW you're into! So ... what part of you is non-traditional again?
Just an observation......
