Description
When a special activity evolves into a tradition within a family, it creates meaning, connection, and community and makes common occasions more momentous and memorable. Establishing a sense of stability and shared history has never been more important to parents than it is today, as families become more fractured and scattered. THE JOY OF FAMILY TRADITIONS offers more than 400 fresh ideas and creative approaches to cultivating birthday, anniversary, holiday, and other rite-of-passage and seasonal traditions that strengthen personal bonds and reflect a family's individual style, spirituality, and values.

 
  • Inspires and instructs families on how to create, personalize, adapt, and preserve relevant traditions that reflect how we live today.
  • Explores the historical, cultural, and often quirky origins of holidays, customs, and milestones, both uncommon and familiar.
  • Includes holidays, holy days, annual events, once-in-a-lifetime occasions, and personal celebrations.
