Many families are brought together by holidays, weddings, and birthdays. Sometimes all we need is an excuse to prompt a family to get together. One great way to do this is through a family tradition. Not, only will you be giving your family a reason to gather closer together, but you will also be creating memories that will last a lifetime.
A family tradition should encompass the personality of your family. It should be something that brings the family together in an activity that everyone enjoys. This can even be a great way to honor an elderly family member by participating in an activity that they enjoy. After they have passed, the family tradition will take on a whole new meaning as your honored family member lives on in memory.
One thing that many families have in common is their taste in food. This can easily bring family members together in a once a year feast. Whether your family cherishes grandma's homemade roast or grandpa's fried catfish, everyone has to eat and most people enjoy it.
Another simple family tradition may be some sort of game night. This family tradition can go a number of ways. It all depends on the families' personality and their likes and dislikes. One family may get together for the super bowl every year. Another family may have a crochet match every year. It is really your decision and should be based upon your entire family.
In fact, you family tradition does not have to be every week, every month, or even every year. You may decide that you want to celebrate every family member's 21st birthday in a certain way. This can also be a great family tradition.
You can do the same thing with women in your family who are about to get married. You tradition may include a spa day for all of the women in your family. These are milestones in everyone's life and a fantastic time to spend it with your family members.
