Do you hang framed diploma/s and certificates in the wall?

I was waiting for my OB-Gyne in her clinic when I noticed the framed diplomas and certificates on the wall. I have been to other homes and noticed that they also hang their diplomas and certificates on their wall. I don't hang mine, but I just keep them in my portfolio. But I'm thinking of framing them and try to hang them on the wall. How about you? Happy Sunday to all!

All my diploma and certificates of achievements and medals were actually laminated purposely for hanging. I did hung than actually when I was still single. Even those of my siblings were also hung by our parents. It's some sort of inspiration that they were able to send their children to school and have successfully graduated. Now that I am married, I brought along all those laminated stuff of mine but I did not hung anymore. I don't want so many frames hung in our bedroom. I just kept them in my cabinet. Even those of my son were also just kept in his portfolio. He preferred it that way. He would not want to hung so many frames in his room either.

No. I've never done that and it's impossible to do that. My husband is having 100s of certificates and if we try to hang them our walls would not be enough. On the other hand I don't like showing off what we have.

Ok. Your husband has 100's of certificates, so maybe he knows a lot of things now. Congratulations to him.

If you're happy hanging them, do it dong. Nothing's really wrong with that.

I don't have framed diplomas or certs on my wall. I feel that I'm being boastful if I were to do so. So I just keep them together with my resume. I think it's really up to you whether you'd want to do so. If you are a professional, hanging them on the wall would give you more credibility, I guess. To me, it's not important compared to what services you can offer to others.

I think, too, that it won't be a good decoration. Now, I changed my mind, I won't try to hang them on the wall. I'll just keep them in my portfolio.

Yes, I do frame and hang them on my walls. I like to see my accomplishments and knowing that I have acheived something in life. I not only hang mines but I also hang my childrens'. The three of them have a wall of their own.

Ok. Of course, paintings are good decorations for the wall. I think you have a beautiful home because you hang a lot of paintings.

it is a tradition for Filipino families. its like they are showing how proud they are to have all their children graduated. For the parents, its their achievements. Well my mother did it. Even our school certificates for participating in a program, awards and others.

I agree with you, parents are just so proud if all of the children graduated. They have struggled and worked so hard to get the children to school. They are just so happy to see those diplomas on the wall, and the graduation pictures, too. You're parents are so grateful for you and your achievements. You must thank them.

I don't and don't see the need but maybe if I went to college for 10 years I would. I think doctors do that as self motivation since, 10 years is a very long time to go to school.

My Mom framed mine and my sister's diplomas as well. She actually made this "little showroom" where guests can see our framed 10R graduation photos beside our college diplomas. Mama even put our award certificates and medals there. It makes me really embarrass but I wouldn't deny Mama that pride. She's really proud of her daughters...

No because it would be hard for me to photocopy it if the time comes. Well for doctors I think they need to frame them because these are proofs that they are real doctors.

It is required for professionals to hanged their certificates at the place of practice but I have seen were person frame theirs and hang it in their homes. I don't think I would frame mines and hang it up at home because no one wants to look at copies when you go on interview. But if I have a office for my business then I would frame them because it sure is a proud moment to see people reading your certificate. Whenever time I go to my hair dresser I always read hers because she always has a new one. She is the type who love to improve in her field.

I was in a college that gave you a diploma for every time you finished an exam! I had so many diplomas that I didnt know what to do with them! So I stuck them all in a portfolio! The only one I did frame was my Grade 12 Diploma! I think when I finish my ECE I will hang that one!

Seeing the diploma in clinics or any certificates is fine, it will be for your own security/safety to check if your doctor is a real one or not. It's typical in Pinoy homes to see diplomas and recognition stuff at home. Our family house has an area wherein all my parents', uncles and aunts' diploma and certificate is placed. There's a cabinet intended for other stuff like medals and a framed graduation picture with their toga on positioned according to the order of graduation date. It's an inspiration for younger generations to study and strive harder no matter how difficult life is because Education is something parents can give to children that can't be taken away... it is priceless, most specifically in the absence of lands to be inherited because sending kids to school is a matter of parental integrity- you can just imagine that it is worth their sweat and blood. Hang yours in your home, it is a reminder of hard work, family pride and humility. I'm sure whoever sees it will be inspired. I will be sending a copy of my diploma and graduation picture to be placed in the family house later on. My father framed the newspaper article which my name was printed when I passed the board exams. Strange but true... that's my family.

It's great to see your response again friend manunulat. I agree with you in all you said. It reminded me of the days of hardships, during those times where all of us are still schooling.
