Families assemble in Sandy UT

Monday evening in Sandy UT (in fact all over Utah) is fondly known by the majority of Utahns as Family Home Evening, a,without exception, gathering of the whole family for reflection, food, fun and games.

In my local area, my neighbors who are my age, recall family complements of eight children as being "average". In some cases they stopped counting at eight. With the larger families with older children, parking at the family home could become quite competitive, one car each (including Mom's) and a truck or two for general use, not even bothering with commercial vehicles that might be thrown into the mix. Boats, trailers RVs etc fit in there somewhere.

Since my wife and I are in the youth of old age, with family spread over two continents, we treat most Mondays as Date Night, another highly recommended tradition.

Utah was founded on family togetherness, and Sandy UT goes a long way to maintaining that tradition.

Natural increase in Salt Lake County requires the building of at least one entirely new school each year to keep up with demand.

Sandy has great schools, making it ideal for new families moving to the area. It could be your home as well.

Larry,

another great post.  I love that mondays are family nights for many across Utah.  Our Mondays are dance/ karate nights for the kids but we always come together for dinner not matter how late it is :)   We have some great traditions in Utah.  Take care,

I think 'Family Home Evening' is one of the most excellent ideas EVER!

Kim - I appreciate your sense of family and tradition that shows in your writing as you also promote Sandy UT as a great place to live.

Chris - right up there with the best. Let's hope that our ever increasing "busyness" does not detract from the practise of worthwhile traditions. Nothing to stop you borrowing the idea for your part of the world.

If more people had a "family night" the world would be a better place. Can't have a family night, have a date night! Enjoy!!

Wayne - I certainly agree. In my five continuous years in Utah I have come to appreciate the soundness of the idea.

Sussie - an Australian TV cmmercial of a decade or more hinted at the idea.

TV reporter: "You'vr won a date with Tom Cruise"

Teenager: "I can't go. Mum's cooking lamb roast."

As I understand it Utah has not copyrighted to the idea, and invites universal participation
