Traditions – theme for CNC’s Women’s Christmas Party: 1-3 pm, Saturday, Dec. 3rd in Rudat Hall

“A tradition is a ritual, belief or object passed down within a society, still maintained in the present,
with origins in the past” (Wikipedia).

 The holidays are FULL of traditions. Some examples include . . . . .
  • How you dress
  • When and how you decorate
  • The foods you cook/bake
  • What activities you engage in

 While the Christmas Season can be crazy busy, it is important to participate in at least a few of your traditional family times for 2 reasons. 

  1. Traditions help anchor the relationships with family and friends. The laughs, love, and meaningful moments build strong bonds and memories. These positive bonds and memories help the relationships to deepen and to maintain cohesion during hard times.
  2. Participating in traditions also gives a sense of belonging.  It identifies who “my group” is. “My group celebrates this way.  It makes me feel happy and secure when we spend time together doing our family/friend traditions.”

 CNC has traditions too. They allow us time to deepen relationships and build memories which promote a sense of belonging. One CNC tradition is the Women’s Christmas Party.

 All women are invited to attend our 2 hour Christmas party. Bring one of your traditional family’s dishes to our afternoon potluck. We will invite some of you to explain how/why this food is a tradition in your family.

More traditional fun. In addition to eating and visiting with one another, we’ll play a traditional British party game, Pass the Parcel. And in keeping with tradition at our Christmas parties, we’ll have a devotional.

 P.S. Bring a friend to share in this memory-building time.

Your Turn . . .
  • What are some of your family traditions?
  • How/why are they meaningful to you?
  • Do you “have” to do them or do you skip them now and again?
