The Rose Parade is an event tethered to traditions - the Tournament House, the Royal Court, and its strict “Never on Sunday” policy. The policy dates to 1893, when officials decided to move the parade to Jan. 2 because New Year's Day fell on a Sunday. The festivities, they decided, disrupted local church services. It's a rule that stuck. For the 18th time in more than a century, Jan. 1, 2012 is a Sunday, and so the parade is scheduled for Monday, the next day. “It's a combination of respect as well as tradition,” said Libby Wright, chairwoman of the Rose Bowl management committee.
