I love Christmas in Australia. I love the extreme heat of the season and how merry everyone is. I see it as a time dedicated to the birthday of Christ, and as a time where people try a bit harder to be nice to each other.
Our family goes to the Wildlife Park every Mother’s Day. Mom and children under three are free. We spend the night in a vacation rental or hotel the night before and just spend quality time together.
Calls on birthdays. I love hearing from loved ones on my birthday and feeling the joy of connection.
I came up with a few events/activities that have been repeated sometimes throughout the years, but it occurred to me that the tradition I enjoy the most is simply BEING with my family. Family is the thing I cherish the most, so anything I get to do with them- traditional or original- is what I value.
I don’t have any. Most of my traditions are religious-based, and those were inconsistently applied.
I really enjoy sunrise church services at Easter and praying in the New Year. The sunrise services are my favorite, as we have them outside in nature.
The cultural/family tradition that I cherish is my Irish heritage with its emphasis on family and community and strong social justice ethic together with its affinity for the mystical journey..
i cherish Christmas with my family and going on walks with my mom
I cherish going on walks with my children – always a good time – they are now young adults and I think they both also cherish our walks as well – I am thankful for that
my fav holiday!
The tradition of remembering the fallen. My Mum lost both her parents in WW2 in service when she was 12 years old. Legacy has always played a part in her life supporting her along the way – even now at 92 years old. For me it has transformed into a “practice” of remembering – but now in a much larger context.
Each year, on the Winter Solstice, my family carves our wishes for the coming year onto Yule Logs and then burns those logs in the hopes that our wishes will come true. I love this tradition and hope to keep it going indefinitely.
Family dinner – it is a time to see everyone and connect. Sometimes it is rushed and sometimes we linger – but it usually happens – and I will be sad when it passes as my children leave the nest.
All the myriad Christmas folks songs from many nations that I grew up singing. Singing everyday was an integral part of my life growing up.
And singing before a meal. My sister and I still often do this, when we meet for a long-distance meal these days over Facebook messenger.
I donˋt know if this saying is known in other areas of the globe too. Here in Bavaria we say , live and let others live. ..
Wishing all of you the very best for 2022. strength, contentment, Inspiration and mental and physical health to you all. Take care
Hi dear Hermann Josef, also in Italy we use to say live and let the others live.
Wishing you the best, too.
In german you would say , leben und leben lassen. To your Friends from Munich you would say in bavarian dialect : lem und lem lassn .
(Nobody would wright dialect) but this is how it would sound. But i Don,t know an englisch word in which the letter e is pronounced as we pronounce it. All the best to you Mica. From Munich , Hermann
Yes, Hermann-Josef – ‘live and let live’ – google gives me ‘leben und andere leben lassen’ for the words in your post. How do you say it? Bavaria – I have a few dear old and newer friends in Munich.
