The Family Tradition

The Family Tradition
January 16, 2014 CuteCoco

I am sure every family has their own tradition. Mostly (that I have heard of or read from other sources) have lovely Sunday Lazy tradition when everybody doesn’t take a shower the whole day and just wrestle in bed or watching tv. That is one cool tradition I must say ๐Ÿ˜€

Other family makes every weekend getaway as their family tradition. So what is it? What’s a family tradition anyway?

Well, in my opinion a family tradition is something that belongs to the family that is carried forward from one generation to the next generation. Sadly in my own big family and in my husband’s family we don’t have that kind of tradition. If there is any it has been long cut before it reaches to our generation.

So J and I decided to create our own family tradition that we hope K and little A will carry through to their own family and so on. The tradition is birthday celebration. Yes other family also celebrate their children birthday but in ours every birthday especially K and little A’s is treated special.

We always wrap our gifts and write a very nice card. Even though it is J or myself who buys all the gifts but it will end up as mine, J’s and either K or little A’s gift. We have started it since K’s 1st birthday and it keeps going up to now.

    Well, our family tradition might be not far away from our religion which is practiced in accordance to our tribe cultures. Those that most excite me is the chain of Galungan and Kuningan celebrations, where the whole family get together, preparing the special meal for the whole family and also for the offerings to the God and our achestors in the day after (on Galungan Day), everyone going to the temples (and family shrines), visiting our relatives’ houses and pray together. In a smaller unit of family, I did the same like yours Rina. However, I did celebrate the kid’s birthday in smaller version, cakes (with lot’s of toys on it (they don’t accept the edible one, hahaha), and Ruth Cupcakes (our favorite!), and gifts for both of them.

    Looks like a lot of fun for your boys! :) I don’t know if we have any family traditions. We do go camping as a family every summer. On the kids’ birthdays, we usually have a quiet night in with just us and the birthday child gets a cupcake while we sing happy birthday to them. I guess that tradition came from my older daughter not liking loud social situations like big parties.

      So that’s the birthday tradition then. Yeah, too big party is sometimes not so much fun for the kids. I know one kid that wouldn’t want to come out for his own birthday party because he hated balloons and crowds ๐Ÿ˜€

    We have a lot of little traditions that we do we with the family, but most of them are around holidays.

    I like your birthday traditions, and I bet the boys do too!
