Traditions and holidays are such an important part of life. They contribute to a sense of comfort and create a feeling of belonging. They encourage people to share memories, promote communication and lead to enjoyment. I like to maximize these advantages by building up to an event and creating anticipation. To prepare for Mother's Day, we did flower arrangements and talked about our families. Leading up to Easter, we colored eggs and made candles. For the Kentucky Derby, we created Derby Hats in arts and crafts that added interest and made race day more fun.
