Family rituals are special things you do regularly as a family. Rituals are different from routines in that rituals have symbolic meaning and are done at special occasions. (Family dinner is a routine, a special dinner celebration is a ritual.) In addition to being something to look forward to, these rituals and traditions also establish a foundation for family values and serve as special bonding experiences. These rituals can be as unique and special as the family itself.
