planning for festivals and celebrations and making them your own


Brad and I have been putting a lot of thought into what festivals and celebrations we want to incorporate into our family's traditions. I would call myself 'very spiritual' and Brad would call himself atheist, but we both come from Christian backgrounds and our extended families celebrate Christian holidays. I now have a list of festivals and celebrations that our little family would like to plan for and celebrate each year. It Includes full moons, birthdays,
Candlemas, Easter, Canada Day, Australia Day, Valentines Day, Christmas and many others.

I have put together a worksheet to help us plan for each celebration and to find focus and meaning in each one. I thought some of you might take interest and perhaps even use it when planning your next family celebration.

Enjoy each moment together for they are all we have.

This makes a lot of sense. I've never thought about it, though. We do the Christmas, Australia Day, Easter, Birthdays thing... but maybe there is more... x

What a neat worksheet! We've been working on what celebrations we want to celebrate each year (besides the "major" holidays), so the worksheet will probably be very useful for us :)

Awesome a worksheet! I often have grand plans and ideas for celebrating but fall behind because I think I have more time than I actually do. This is wonderful. Thanks!

this is great. You are a very resource full mama this week! I'll try to write out what we'll do on Ostara (spring equinox here).

I did the star baby yesterday :) it has a cotton face thought, as I had no beads.
