Since childhood I do love local, unique traditions, culture and dialects. For me all these elements called folklore have a great meaning for identity of the nation, ethnic group, region and so on. I would never use word FOLKLORE as pejorative term, what is often being done in common speech in Poland. The term folklore refers in this context to sth old-fashioned, not modern, not up to date.
