5. Life needs a sense of ritual

In such a lovely festival, why not set up a family ritual to exchange gifts with children every Valentine’s day?

 “Ritual is what makes one day different from the other days, one hour different from the other hours” – the little prince

The reason many people often find life boring is that they lack a sense of ritual, which is quite common in today’s society. Therefore, having family rituals can be placed as a priority, especially when children are still young. This teaches them to appreciate and enjoy life while learning; and learn to make every ordinary day feel special. Besides, such activities also allow them to express their feelings and understand how joyful it is to give and receive love!

6. Take a trip down memory lane

On Valentine’s day, take your spouse and child somewhere special and meaningful. Whether it is a park, a restaurant, or a movie theatre, tell your children stories about your encounters and memories between you and your spouse – Like how you two met, what you love about one another, etc. Let them bathe in the atmosphere of love, and take the opportunity to relive the good old days. Looking back on the past and into the future, you will enjoy such family time with deep appreciation!

7. Valentine’s day family dinner

After school and work, dine at a restaurant which all of you love; or make a hearty dinner at home. If you plan to make dinner at home, let the whole family get involved in creating all kinds of “love” dishes and creative snacks. Have a heart to heart talk while having dinner –  Wouldn’t it be nice to hear your child’s funny stories at school or your spouse’s encounters during their day at work? Just remember that as long as there is love in the heart, every day is Valentine’s Day, and every meal is a romantic one!

At the end of the day, Valentine’s Day is not just a festival of love between lovers but can also be an opportunity to express love to our family, friends and loved ones.
