Celebration Time

Celebration TimeCelebration Time – Cleaning, shopping, making sweets and making plans for holidays, how to spend time with family and friends – all this has become a part and parcel of festivities. These festivities are meant to be the routine breakers – a time to connect with the fun side of ourselves, reminding us of how to celebrate, spend time and just be ourselves. But given the commercialisation of festivities, a lot of time now, goes on budgeting the festivities – whether in terms of time or money.

For working professionals, especially for employed women, festivities means taking on the dual role – ensuring you do not miss the professional deadlines of meeting the targets while making certain that the traditions of the household are maintained [whether completing the rituals or preparing the sweets or organising the routine family gatherings]. Managing time and energy takes a toll on many, but the vigour increasing and celebration times triumphs. Men on the other hand ensure that the professional relationships are maintained with gifting and targets are met. Finance management are integral to festivities or rather one can enjoy the festivities in a luxuries manner if finances are in place. In household where men are the only earning member, then the expenses can turn festivities into frustrations. But we still see, that every person tries to fulfil the desires as much as possible and work with more motivation and focus.

The happiest of the lot are the children, who are at the receiving end. Most of them are happy for the holidays, lazing around, travelling, gifts and no study time. Yet there are those who involve themselves in some more meaningful activities – summer jobs, projects or assignments to earn some quick pocket money or even take up some course.
Irrespective of what they do, the children / youngsters enjoy the most. This is the time to make them realise that festivities are important for creating connects with our roots, people, families and even surroundings – whether in terms of a social cause or environment.

It’s time that we start taking any festivity in its full essence. Yes, it will require us to go beyond, break the routine, spend more time & energy – but that’s the whole point. Instead of shying away due to some possible discomforts, it would be better if we focus on the happiness we would get, the bond that we can create and celebrate the times of togetherness, thus making some memorable memories.
