Why have a family reunion?
The most common reason is to bring families together to reconnect as these days many live great distances from one another. Family in one sort or another is very important to us. Formally defined, a family is:
In human context, a family (from Latin: familiare) is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence. In most societies it is the principal institution for the socialization of children. Extended from the human “family unit” by biological-cultural affinity, marriage, economy, culture, tradition, honour, and friendship are concepts of family that are physical and metaphorical, or that grow increasingly inclusive extending to community, village, city, region, nationhood, global village and humanism.
A family group consisting of a father, mother and their children is called a nuclear family. This term can be contrasted with an extended family. In the study of animals it has been found that many species form groups that have similarities to human “family”—often called “packs.”
Some contemporary definitions include:
A family is a group of people who are important to each other and offer each other love and support, especially in times of crises.
Family are people in your life who you may be related to by blood, marriage, or choice, often for a lifetime (yours or theirs), who you hold dear and would generally do anything to help them when needed including making personal sacrifices, and whom you generally agree to accept no matter what they do. They may be someone you see daily or infrequently but the bond remains, and stands the test of time, distance, and overrides almost any challenges.
At any rate, it helps to strengthen relationships to spend time together.
