It can be the tradition of our city, or heritage, our family, or even our faith. Many people wear the cross around their neck but do not go to Church. They still feel that the item gives them a connection to their faith and its tradition. Holy anointing oil is a wonderful and lesser-known item you can use when looking for that sense of connection.

Prayer is something almost everyone can identify with. No matter your beliefs or faith, prayer is probably a major part of your practice.
