keep the tradition going

I think I'd like to keep the tradition going and meet up at El Torito.

When you 'keep the tradition going,' it means that you take great care in making sure that certain past actions are done again, because you think they are very special.

Notice the following:

  1. I try hard to keep the tradition going each year, and I cook a big turkey.
  2. It is important to keep the tradition going in families.

land on

My birthday does land on a Wednesday this year.

To 'land on' means that an event happens on a particular date or day.

Notice the following:

  1. Christmas lands on a weekend this year, so we should get some extra time off work.
  2. What day does Easter land on this year?

Memorial Day

So maybe the weekend before that, which happens to be a three day weekend because of Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is an American public holiday which is used to remember soldiers from all wars who are dead now.

Notice the following:

  1. I think we are all going round to her house for Memorial Day.
  2. Why do you commemorate Memorial Day?

that's the best

That's the best, because then you get to celebrate in the middle of the week and the weekend before and hopefully the weekend after.

'That's the best' means that particular thing is better than anything else.

Notice the following:

  1. I love Christmas. Of all the holiday I think that's the best.
  2. Going out on a Saturday is better than a Friday. That's the best.

I really wouldn't mind it

I really wouldn't mind it, especially for the whole month.

'I really wouldn't mind it' means that it would not bother you.

Notice the following:

  1. I really wouldn't mind it if you did not come.
  2. I really wouldn't mind it if I had to work over Christmas.
