About 6 relatives came although i just am familiar with only one of them because he started in our home when I was child when he was starting to find a job. So other relatives have not been in our place before. The ones with are his sister Mk uncles, nephews and etc. Anyways it's great he has been able to visit as he might get back to Canada again soon for his work and he is already resident in Canada. We just had long talks and take some pictures and etc. They started for about four hours and they had to get back because they would still have three hour drive back to their place

hi, sometimes we have fun in chatting with relatives or guests. you have enjoyed time with them. We should always welcome our guests warmly. In Sanskrit language it is said that 'Atithi Devo Bhav' means guest is like God.

it is good to see and to talk with our relatives at least once a year, for my family we dont visit our relatives on their home. we only meet each others on our main province like fiesta, sometimes we set do drink in evening, talking lots of topic once in a while with our friends there. I miss it its only happen once in 5 years

How was your day with your relatives? I really like it when we have guests at home. Its really fun. Long talks, food, discussions,etc... But if they would stay for more days it might be a little bit trouble.

I love stories like these because I am happy when I am with my relatives and family and I really love them dearly too. We always hang out in one of my aunt's house and we just goof around, eat together and watch movies in their big movie room. Sometimes when the older ones talk my cousins and I just surf the internet and then eventually we'll take part in the conversation. These are really fun memories and I will really keep them forever. Sadly, though, most of my relatives now and my family members are away and are working abroad and far away places so we only get together during holidays and vacations like christmas, summer and semestral breaks. But whenever we get together we make sure we are happy and have fun together and bond.

It is nice to meet people that you didn't know were related to you. And it is even better to see familiar faces after a long time. It may not be that long but at least you get to spend some time with them. I am missing my family now and I have been away from them for only two months.

Nowadays one is so busy with his day to day work that he does not have the time to catch up with his friends and family,due to this the society is becoming weak and the personal relations are getting strained.So it is great to have somebody you like come to your place and spend some time together.Such gettogethers are a relief for the people who are far away from their home and relatives.

I guess you had an enjoyable time with your relatives. Meeting relatives for the first time is likewise exciting.

it is great to have some relatives around, it sometimes widen your connections. I like meeting relatives, whether of close affiliations or distant ones. Like what I have said it widens your connections and chance and opportunity for so many options.

I got married in my twenties and since then, I have become an alien to my family and relatives because I and my husband are staying far from many of them. For fifteen years already that I haven't seen my mother and siblings I terribly miss them. Most of my relatives are miles and oceans away. That's why, these days, whenever relatives come home to have vacation I rally to have them come over. I have many plans..cook for them, go to the beach, eat seafoods at many restaurants here, go to the malls, and attend church. I really wish to have reunions with my relatives and loved ones.

So, it's just a short visit and they did not stay overnight at your place, right? It's nice to have visitors once in a while. I'm not one for having too many visitors, though... I can't say I'm a very good host, I guess. With four children, my house is full enough even without having any relatives to stay over.

That is wonderful that you had good family time. I am blessed with the fact that my family gets together on a regular basis. We spend holidays together and of course weddings. We actually have so many that we have to rent out halls to have holidays so we can all fit. We usually have about 75 of us at each holiday. It is wonderful to see our children play together knowing that they are close and they will always have each other. I think family is so very important.
