Family rituals and traditions are important to the health and wellbeing of today’s busy families. They promote a sense of identity and a feeling of belonging. A ritual differs from an ordinary routine by having some emotional significance. Traditions are often cultural, ethnic, or faith-based and can be handed down from generation to generation, connecting us to the past.
To start your own ritual or tradition, assess what you are already doing. What do you do on each holiday? How do you celebrate birthdays or anniversaries? Do you celebrate the first or last day of school? What are your nightly rituals? Lent and Easter can be a great time to start!
