What is a Mormon tradition?
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) have many traditions - some are religious and others are cultural.
-Mormons have a strong tradition of Church attendance and personal study and worship. Mormons believe it is essential to develop a personal witness of and relationship to God, and to gather together to share this witness with each other.
-Mormons have a unique tradition of lay clergy and teaching each other. Nearly every position in the church is filled by a temporary volunteer. Teaching and preaching duties are rotated among congregation members so that each person can share and discuss their personal faith.
-Mormons also have a tradition of General Conference, every six months they gather together as a worldwide church to watch a live feed (via internet or sattelite) of top leaders giving sermons from Church headquarters. This is a big deal to most Mormons, and is treated almost like a holiday.
-Mormons follow Christian traditions such as weekly communion (called sacrament), baptism, and marriage.
-Many Mormons have a tradition of celebrating the Mormon pioneers and the history of their church each summer on July 24. This is called 'pioneer day' and is a state holiday in Utah, USA.
-Mormons have a strong tradition of missions. Young Mormons ages 18-25 often serve 1 1/2 to 2 years as missionaries, and it is increasingly popular for retired couples to serve as well. These missionaries both spread the gospel and perform service.
-Mormons also celebrate most cultural, national, and Christian holidays, including Easter, Christmas, Independence Day, etc.
-Mormons have a tradition of strong families, and many families have traditions of "Family Home Evening", meaning they gather together one night a week to worship, learn, and play together.

It depends on your faith. Most Catholic churches want Godparents to also be Catholic, so you will have to speak to your priest and ask if he is willing to allow a Mormon to be your child's Godparent. Other religions that recognize the tradition of Godparents will have their own requirements, you will have to ask the priest/pastor/etc who is performing the ceremony what those requirements are.

The Mormon Trail was traveled by Mormon Pioneers from Illinois to Utah after they had been kicked out of Illinois. It was then traveled by Mormon converts from Europe and Canada as they immigrated to "Zion" (the Mormon settlements in Utah). The trail was mostly discontinued after the railroad reached Salt Lake City.
The state of Deseret, proposed by Mormon pioneers, covered much the area that is now Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona. "Mormon" is not a language, so deseret is not 'Mormon' for honeybee. Deseret is one of the few non-English words found in the Book of Mormon, where it is defined as honeybee.
