Family traditions are important in that they provide family members with events to look forward to and opportunity to continue strengthening family relationships. Traditions can be significant events like annual family reunions or they can be as simple as carving pumpkins for Halloween.
The point of family traditions is to help the family spend quality time together doing wholesome activities. Whether your family is old or young, build family togetherness by picking a few traditions and sticking with them. The time spent together is worth the preparation.
“Family traditions counter alienation and confusion. They help us define who we are; they provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world.” —Susan Lieberman
