Importance of Family Traditions

Are there any traditions you hope your family will carry on?  Traditions are a wonderful part of any family and help make families unique. Whether yours includes special foods, lights, songs, or gifts of time, talents and treasure, traditions help bring families and friends together to make life meaningful.

Our family holds an Italian Christmas party every year for our dear friends.  My husband does all the cooking, while I prepare our home to receive some 70 invited guests. This tradition has been going on for nearly 17 years. And while it takes a great deal of teamwork and planning, we are most grateful to be able to share our hospitality and good cheer with so many.

This holiday season, take the time to reflect and act upon your favorite traditions.  I believe they are too valuable to dismiss and never too late to begin!
