I hear some families have family traditions, like always taking a holiday same week, same place each year. Others get their photo taken at the same tree each Christmas. I have heard of families with a wall devoted to pencil marks of each child's height? What are your family's rituals.

My mum used to always make me get up early on the first day of summer (May 1st) and wet my face with the morning dew from the grass whilst saying Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits. Its supposed to help you retain your youthfull look and bring luck for the year. I told them about it in work last week and a few actually did it. I can just imagine any onlookers seing them in their gardens spreading dew on their faces and rabbiting away!.

sounds like a throwback to ancient Celtic Pagan times!

One ritual is getting together with my husbands family christimas eve and spending christmas with my family. We also try to spend holidays together with our daughter and her in-laws. I have a standing date on Fridays to have lunch with two friends they are not families but we have been doing this for a few years. It is so much fun to get together.
