National Family Day is celebrated every year on September 26th. The holiday draws attention to one of the most important things in life – the family.
A family is a group of people who are biological relatives – parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, spouses, aunts, and uncles. Social relations between relatives differ depending on the degree of kinship, family traditions, and place of residence. In some cultures, it is customary for children to live separately from their parents, and in some, all relatives live in the same house.
- Throughout human history, the concept of family has changed to include clans and even close friends.
- The study of the family unit is a separate branch of sociology, formed in the second half of the 19th century.
- Family relations are influenced by a huge number of factors – industrialization, the development of international passenger traffic, and globalization.
- A healthy nation and society are impossible without family ties. In addition, a close-knit, strong family largely determines the success of a child in the future, increasing self-esteem.
How to take part
Dedicate a day to communicating with your family. Pay attention to the people who will always come to your rescue, support you, and be with you in joy and in sorrow. Organize a lunch for them or do something together, like going to a football game, a movie, or a favorite restaurant. If your family is far away, call them. There are many technologies for this, which allow you not only to hear, but also to see a loved one.
