Welcome to "Tamir on the Street". ♪ Ba ba bada ba ba Tamir ♪ ♪ Bap bap a dap bap my show ♪ - Today's show is all about answering the question, oh, hi. What are our friends family traditions? Well, a tradition is when we pass down something special, like a favorite food or custom or belief from person to person in our family. Oh, a plate. Hmm. What does a plate have to do with family traditions? Let's find out. Oh, hi. Oh, let's go. Oh, hi Cookie Monster. Hi Charlie. - [Both] Hi Tamir. - Oh, something smells good. - Yeah, I taught Cookie Monster how to make challah. Challah is a special bread out I have every Friday night with my family as part of our Jewish tradition. - Oh, that just like cookie for me family. Though, we have those every day, hour, sometimes minute. (kids laugh) - Hey, Cookie Monster. Can you share your family's cookie recipe with me? Just like I shared my challah recipe. (Cookie Monster gasps) - Me like the sound of that. - Those sound like great family traditions. Food is an important part of family traditions. Oh, it reminds me every Sunday we have my Great Grandpa's Zizzi's triple cheesy macarini. (laughs) (Cookie Monster gasps) Yeah. - Wanna know the best part about these traditions? - They taste delicious. - Yeah. - And we look forward to making them with our families every week. Now let's dig in. - Challah! (Cookie Monster gobbles) - Well, that was one yummy tradition. Thanks for sharing, Charlie. Music. Oh, come on. Let's see how music can be a family tradition. Oh, bye Cookie, bye Charlie. - [Both] Bye, Tamir. - Oh, go ahead. Oh nice, thank you. Oh. Onward. Oh, that's why we had the musical notes. Hey Wes. - Oh, hi Tamir. - Oh, that sounds great. - Oh, thanks. I've been practicing my steel drum a lot. - Oh, can you tell us about your steel drum and why you like to play it? - Oh, my mom told me about the steel drum. She even made my drum for me. She made your drum? - Yeah, my grandparents are from Trinidad and when my mom would visit them she'd listen to her neighbors play the steel drum. And she loved it so much that she made a drum so I can play my Trinidadian music for everyone on Sesame Street. - Wow, your mom passed down her love of music to you. Music is another great family tradition. - Every time I play my drum, I think of my family. - Music reminds me of my family too. I have a drumstick from my great grandfather. Oh, there it is. Yeah. Check this out. Yeah. Every time I play it I feel like he's right there with me. Thanks for sharing your family tradition with us, Wes. All right. Play me out. (laughs) (Sesame theme song plays on steel drum) What a great show. We learned all about different family traditions. We learned about this special bread called challah that Charlie's family makes every week. And we learned how Wes' mom passed down her love of Trinidadian music to Wes. Thanks for celebrating families with this today. I know my family's watching so big shout out to mom and dad and Grandma Nell and Gabrielle. (laugh) All right, we'll see you next time on "Tamir on the Street".
