Families around the world have traditions that have been passed down for generations. Thanksgiving table cloths, and “closing” the living room a week before guests arrive, families do things a little differently to celebrate. When her family realized that their 6-year-old daughter was disappointed by the holiday meant to represent “love,” they knew that they had been celebrating it wrong for far too long!
When I was 6 I came home from school upset because I didn’t have a valentine. My mom and dad decided right then that our family was going to celebrate Valentine’s Day every year in a big way. That Valentine’s Day was more than boyfriends and girlfriends, it was about showing love to each other and about family.
26 years later and we are still going strong on our tradition. Our party has grown in size as we have gotten married, added friends and had babies. The Bundenthal Valentine’s Day party is bigger than Thanksgiving and all our friends know about this tradition and talk about it throughout the year. So spend this Valentine’s Day showing love to the important people in your life. And hold your family close and let them know how much you love them this Valentine’s Day!”
Now, Valentine’s Day isn’t about finding a sweetheart or obsessing about a crush…it’s about focusing on the people that matter and the family that will always be there for each other! They even decorate a tree and hang their Valentine’s cards for one another! Will you be trying out this new holiday tradition?
