Number one, I learned from a friend that holidays give us a break from the hum drum repitition of ordinary days: going to school, going to work, homework, showers, preparing meals, cleaning up after meals and so on and so forth.
Number two. To that I would add, not only does it break the monotony of our days, but it gives us a chance to celebrate life! Everyday is a gift and holidays may celebrate different things in life, but it's also an opportunity to celebrate love and to celebrate life!
And finally, number three. I've also got a hidden (or not so hidden) agenda: the more diverse our family activities, the richer the opportunities for language development in our two home languages: English and Spanish! Let me explain...
And finally, love notes encourage them to read and build their self-esteem!
And this is why I love taking advantage of every holiday possible to do something special for my family!
