Silent Saturday: Family Traditions

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

I grew up with the tradition of camping every Memorial Day weekend with my family. It almost always inevitably rained, yet we still went and had bucket loads of wet, muddy fun! I have many silly, happy memories from our family camping trips and now enjoy taking my own children camping.

We just woke up and brrr, what a cold morning! Trying to keep warm with a campfire, blankets, and snuggles.

Family traditions are so important for us to have! “Children benefit tremendously from the feelings of unity and connectedness that are manifested through tradition” (Family Traditions, 2006).

What traditions exist in your family? Will you be enjoying a family tradition or ritual this Memorial Day weekend? Whatever your plans are for the weekend, engaging in old traditions or perhaps starting new ones, may you have a beautiful and blessed time!
