All in the Family
December is a special time for Filipino families—reunions, get-togethers and parties abound as relatives from abroad fly in, busy work schedules give way to extended vacations, and everything else is put on hold in order to celebrate family, the holidays, and all the traditions that come with Christmas and New Year.
It is important to keep up courtesies, even among family members. Not only does it make every occasion flow more smoothly, it also turns each gathering into a no-stress, fun party.
Delegate and volunteer.
Families usually have self-appointed organizers who take the helm when it comes to planning and execution. Offering to help them in any way you can—whether it’s volunteering your home as a venue or taking care of food or invitations will always be a welcome gesture. If you are taking charge of plans, try to delegate the tasks so you are not overwhelmed as well.
Adapt and adjust.
Mixing and mingling with second and third cousins, especially during large, extended family parties, can take some adjustment, especially when it comes to varying styles of entertaining. Let any reservations and inhibitions go and embrace the mix of personalities and types of parties.
Keep things light.
Every family has their share of dilemmas and grievances. Stay positive during family parties and try to keep serious talk out of the celebrations.
It is but natural for old family stories, childhood tales and other such histories to come out during these gatherings. Indulge the family’s natural storytellers and remember that every tale presents an opportunity to learn more about the people in your family tree.
