Families are the ‘basic core’ of our society – we are born into them and some of the most important developing years of our lives are spent growing up with our families.
Each year there is a different theme for the day and in 2013 the theme will be ‘Advancing Social Integration and Intergenerational Solidarity’.
Our lives can get so hectic – so let’s use this day to slow down and spend time with our families. Go for a picnic or something else that bonds you together. To keep tabs on planned upcoming events, go to the International Day of Families website.
