Apparently we’ve been asked to do a seminar on Family Traditions at a Children’s Ministry conference later this year. (Janeen, is that right?) Which sounds really cool. Except that it means that we need to hurry up and get some family traditions so that we know what we’re talking about. Haha. The funniest thing is that I just googled “Family Traditions” two days ago, just because I was interested. All things work together…
So I’m putting a call out–Family Traditions and Rituals, please! I’m sure that all of you have either experienced or heard of family traditions. Could you please share them? If I was Pioneer Woman, I would give a Kitchen Aid mixer to a selected commenter, chosen at random from 10,000 entries. But I’m not, so I will instead promise that you, dear readers, will be included in the resources list of the final compilation. Not as useful, but definitely heart-felt.
Here are some categories I’ve thought of (feel free to give category ideas, too…anything goes!)
Holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc)
Random un-holidays (such as International Waffle Day or Talk Like a Pirate Day)
Bedtime or mealtime rituals
Liturgical year traditions
Etc., etc., etc.
Thank you! Mwa, mwa, mwa….
