Earlier in my life it made good sense to think about how to see all the family in the cold months and in the Christmas, when my now adult kids were small and all wished to see each other. When I lived in Denmark I kept a little before Christmas party for my friends and family, if they had time to join a day. Then we created decorations with candle lights or created other kind of decorations. At this time I just have this day in my mind. It was very nice to see the friends and family and have a nice day with dinner together. I miss that day now, but my life changed when I became expat in Spain and both the family and friends were far away.
It gives good sense to create our own traditions in life, we also give our kids some values as they can use, when they grow up and need to find their own values. When I think some years back, I see many traditions created in my little family.
Today they live their own lives and I feel happy to see them being able to take good care of them selves, which for me means that I did something right in their childhood. It gives good sense that they live in their new families in each their country, because they really need to be independent to be able to live so far away from the family.
I think that all of us now create new traditions in our families. What about you?
