Celebrating festivals with children

This year is the first time the kids get to play with lanterns in their own porch. We used to live in a condo/apartment before so we didn't have our own porch to do such things. They enjoyed it of course. And so did we. We enjoyed seeing them enjoying themselves.

It makes us happy to see them so happy. That is the joy of having children. Their infectious laughter and happiness fills our home with smiles and happiness.

How quickly the kids have grown. Its festive occassions like these that makes us reflect and compare. I still remember their first lantern, second, third and so on and so forth. Just like I remember their first birthday and second and third..... We remember their first Chinese New Year, the second, the third....

We try to make each festival exciting for them while trying to expose and teach them about their own culture and celebrations. We try to make a family tradition out of it so that it will create happy memories for them. Hopefully we can continue with our family traditions and celebrations for many more years to come.
