Here are some of the most common ideas for family rituals that you can start with your own family:
Walking the dogs after supper – this is a common ritual being done by many families, especially with their little ones.
Reading bedtime stories – some families choose to gather the children right before bedtime and read stories.
Going to the beach – this is usually done by most families during summer. The entire family prepares for a day out in the sun and enjoy an entire day of fun and relaxation.
Celebrating school – there are some families who have started a ritual of going out with all the family members for a dinner to celebrate a child’s first day in school. Moms and dads also like to take pictures of their child on their first day of school, especially in their new school uniform and with their lunchbox and school bag.
Going to Mass every Sunday – this is also one of the most common rituals for families to participate in. Going to Mass as a family on a Sunday morning is also a great way to interact with the local community.
Film night – this is a fun ritual where family members can get together to watch a film at home. You can prepare everyone’s favourite snacks and take turns each week in selecting the movie.
