Celebration! People all over the world take the opportunity to celebrate everything and anything. Celebrations can last just a few moments to days or weeks. The celebration of a small accomplishment can be in the form of a “high five”. The Chinese New Year celebration is more than two weeks. There are celebrations that range from the traditional to the unusual. Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving are examples of traditional celebrations. April Fool’s Day and Halloween are unusual yet popular. The variety of religious or spiritual celebrations abounds world-wide and is present in most cultures. Celebrating, whether it’s for fun or to give honor, is loved by all.
Viewpoint 1: I celebrate my beliefs by living them. Even though my beliefs are quite different from my friends and family we celebrate our beliefs by coming together while respecting each other. This creates agreeable conditions where we can all celebrate with joy and love on any given holiday.
Viewpoint 2: I spend time with family and friends. Also, I like to take time with Mother Nature. For me, being in nature is really important when celebrating who I am and what I believe.
I celebrate by taking some time to meditate and celebrate my spirituality. I also go to see my family where a big part of the celebration is the dinner. When children are involved I like to do some type of activity with them which involves celebrating our beliefs.
However you celebrate your beliefs, celebrate knowing you are loved. If you don’t feel loved, know that I love you!
