How to Celebrate National Sons and Daughters Day
Each year on August 11th, sons and daughters across the country celebrate National Sons and Daughters Day.
It's an important day for us here at the Los Angeles Jewish Home. That's because, first, every resident of the Home, every patient we care for, and every member of our staff is, of course, a son or daughter.
Often, there are people in our lives we may regard as our "son" or "daughter." This could be a family member, children of close friends, or a "little brother and sister" from a community organization.
Today is a day for all of us to show our appreciation for the sons and daughters in our lives. Here are 6 ways you can celebrate this special day:
- Cook a favorite meal together
- Watch a favorite movie or go to the theater
- Go to a museum
- Dine out for lunch or dinner
- Look at old photographs and reminisce
- Enjoy an ice cream together
If a son or daughter has moved away, call, Facetime, or Skype them and have a nice, long chat.
Celebrate this special day with your children or anyone else who's like a son or daughter to you.
