Happy International Day of Families!


International Day of Families was brought about by the United Nations Programme on the Family and will stress the importance of having healthy and happy relationships with your relatives.

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.
