International Day of Families is May 15th Annually

May 15, 2016

The International Day of Families was brought about by the United Nations and stresses the importance of having healthy and happy relationships with your relatives.  Families are the “basic core” of our society.  We are born into them and some of the most important developing years of our lives are spent growing up with our families.   However, every family life is different and it is important to recognize and celebrate these differences.  Each year, the overall theme of International Day of Families is different.   The theme for 2016, the 22nd anniversary of the day, is “FAMILIES…HEALTHY LIVES AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.”  Visit the International Day of Families website for planned,  upcoming events.  Our lives can get so hectic…so time and goal oriented…we can often forget to celebrate and appreciate our families.  So, on this day, try to set aside some time to spend with your family.  Have fun…go on a picnic…visit the zoo or a museum…have a family cook out…play indoor or yard games…just spend time together doing what your family enjoys!!
