    Creating an Inter-Generational Holiday Celebration

    Friday, December 16th, 2011

    Although the holidays are often a time for families to come together and share stories with one another, it’s important to make sure that your elderly relatives feel included in the story telling, and that their legacy is being preserved. Take advantage of this time together to truly understand where your family roots are coming from and how they have grown and branched out to create the family dynamic that you all share.

    You can plan your holiday activities around this goal of creating an inter-generational holiday. By making sure that your elderly relatives feel included, encouraged, and represented in the holiday activities, you will teach your children about the importance of legacy, and might even learn some family history in the process.
