Celebrations with the family – be it for festivals or special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries – are always packed with a lot of fun and joy. Add in a colourfully decorated home, sparkling lights, laughter-filled conversations, retold stories, gleefully playing children, table full of wonderful delicacies, gifts in shiny wraps and family celebrations are sure to give anyone a load of lovely memories.
Also, celebrations and festivities like these, might be the only occasion where your child gets to meet all her relatives and friends. In this fast-paced world, where people are getting busier and busier, celebrations can be not just a great opportunity for some family meeting and bonding, but also a much-needed a break for all.
But family celebrations hold much more value than being just celebrations. An article in creativelivingwithchildren.com says, “Life at home with children can be rich, creative and more meaningful when we celebrate the small things in daily life with consciousness and creativity. It is an opportunity to share our values with our children, to teach them appreciation, to challenge them to observe nature, to be thoughtful, to be creative and to show initiative.” So, Christmas and Diwali and Eid aside, also take an effort towards celebrating little things in life, like say, the end of your child’s exams. This will definitely deepen the family bond and teach important values to her.
