A mother's job during festivals or celebrations

A mother wears many hats. Among them are being the educator and providing entertainment and food. During festivals, these "duties" feature even more prominently. Lol!

During this Chinese New Year festival, my job as a mother include:

  • creating good and happy memories for the kids
  • educating the kids about their culture and to be proud of who they are
  • making sure the kids get to taste all the best New Year foods or goodies
  • creating excitement and anticipation and fun for the kids during the festivals

I'm definitely looking forward to these "tasks". Planning and creating excitement for them by dressing them up in new clothes, giving them angpows and allowing them to partake in sweet drinks and cookies (its just once a year afterall) is very enjoyable to me too and makes the festival memorable for me and my spouse as well.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
