What Happen to Sunday Dinners?

I had this conversation with a Feng Shui client the other day about family values or rather the lack of these days. It seems more and more we tend to move a part from gathering with family expect for on the holidays. What happened to those Sunday dinners and taking a day to just be.

I have many values I wish to pass along to my family when the time comes and bringing back Sunday Dinners will surly be one of them.

What family traditions did you have over time may have slipped away and would like to bring back?

Growing up in New York was truly a melting pot of an experience. I lived next to the Pigliacellis, Kalogerakos and McDowell's across the street. What I miss most is the same thing you talk about, SUnday late afternoon dinners with red gravy and macaronis. My nieghbor's mom would simmer the sauce for the entire day. We would all gather round and pass the meat from the sauce, the ronis and the actual sauce with fresh semolina bread. Wow what a memory and tradition I miss.

Family dinners every night.  This is something that I believe in, but so many families don't do it.  I wonder how they communicate their daily ups and downs... do they just text each other all day long?

Laura,I like Sunday Dinners too. I try to do it several times a years and invite all the kids. I also like game night. It has been awhile but we all seem to enjoy them.

That never happens with my wife and I, we eat together and at least once per week, we have date night. Your post is so correct.

Make it a great day!

Hi Laura,  I 've notice that the last 2 generations in our family have gone downhill as far as family dinners. Eveyone i doing their own thing.  That's a shame.

Hi Laura, one of my family values that we all share is to spend as little time together as possible! HaHa. Actually dinner together (heck any meal) has always been big in my family and extended family. Of course now a days it helps if there's a little wine too ;)

Laura, I agree the fiber of family values can not and should not be allowed to erode. I loved life growing up we would eat together, talk and laugh together.....I still insist in our busy lives to have sit down dinner even if it is late.... Diane and I end up at least five or six evenings eating dinner together!, What has faded is having more conversations than I would like due to our busy life styles as well as distractions, Endre
