Family Traditions are Important


In many ways, family traditions provide some of the glue that holds families together.  We have traditions of caramel apples on Halloween, acting out the Nativity and eating clam chowder on Christmas Eve, skiing on the day after Christmas, hunting for Easter baskets, family reunions, a neighborhood block party on the 4th of July, and also hunting for gold coins on St. Patrick's day.  These are things that children look forward to and give them happy memories to improve their bond with the family and give them stability.  Here is a great article listing many family traditions that you could start in your own family!
