It's All About The Family

Unless you know me really well, this post may see a bit odd, coming from me.

But I think it's important. So I wanted to do something about it.

Monday, September 25th is Family Day. It's being sponsered by Nick and TV Land and they have gained a lot of commercial support behind it.

I've mentioned time and time again how important I think having dinner together as a family is - and this is the main push of this whole event. In fact - Nick is not even broadcasting during the dinner hour, instead they will be showing photos of families having dinner together that has been sent in by viewers.

I thought it would be kinda cool to do something here. I thought maybe we'd like to share funny or touching stories that center around family dinners, and favorite recipes. Since trackbacks don't work you can leave links in my comments or, if you don't have a blog feel free to tell the story here.

I'll remind you again over the next few days - but please start thinking about this. And then start planning a really fun/special dinner with your family that evening. Me? I'm not sure yet WHAT I'll do - but I'll do something. That much you can be sure of.

Is this like "Children's Day?"

I remember growing up we kids complained once about Mother's Day and Father's Day because we didn't have a Kid's day. We were told that every day was kids day. I get it now.

And every day SHOULD be family day, if you ask me.

I didn't realize families didn't eat dinner together every night until I went to college.

I thought that that was just how things were. Everyone ate dinner together every night, just like we did.

Now, there is only Mr Weenie and I but it's rare that we don't have dinner together, discussing the days events.
