Family Fun Doesn't Have to be Expensive

Spending time together as a family is important, especially as your children get older. As they grow-up family time gets harder to find (and often afford), but it also becomes even more important.

A fun way to spend time together, without spending a fortune is to celebrate a holiday even if it’s not a holiday.  Check the calendar and online and you'll find so many unusual holidays on which to peg your celebration.  For instance, there’s a National Watermelon Day.  Celebrate by gathering the family in the backyard or a park and eating watermelon (OK, you may need to wait until January or February for this one). But it's still July, so why not celebrate Christmas in July this weekend and turn your Sunday roast into Christmas Dinner?  Or how about Wattle Day or Women's History Day or Mother's Day in September and Father's Day in October?

It doesn't really matter what you're celebrating, as long as you are celebrating together. Make up a celebration just for your family and keep it as an annual family celebration, and build a tradition that will stretch into the future.
