Red Door: A Sign You've Paid Off Your Mortgage?

New, 12 comments

It's an old timey tradition: You finish paying off the mortgage, get out the red paint and slap it on your door. But like the oral storytelling and spanking your kids, some traditions are ignored by the younger generations. Or is it just that no one has paid off their mortgage?
