You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gifts to you, as you are to them.–Desmond Tutu
Here in America, November is always a busy month of the year. Thanksgiving Day, one of the most eventful days of the entire year, is being celebrated on the 4th Thursday- a national holiday, an annual Federal holiday! Most people celebrate this occasion by gathering with family members and relatives because this day is a special time for family togetherness.
The period from the Thanksgiving Day through the New Year’s Day is considered to be the “Holiday Season”. So, the Thanksgiving Day is barely 4 weeks away from Christmas. And it won’t be long before the family meets again for another “Family time”.
Family celebrations don’t have to be expensive and elaborate. With a little extra time, effort and planning, you can come up with an enjoyable way to make ’em happen. (Consider simple but meaningful ideas from http://www.chateaugay.com.)The important principle in establishing a family-get-together is to celebrate and create laughter, fun and special memories that will last a lifetime. Gathering together will help the members to reconnect, rekindle the relationship with each other and strengthen the family bond.
Let us strive to give importance to family celebrations, so we could stay connected. Nothing is more important than a strong family bond.
