February 18 is Family Day! Family Day is a day that, although I’m feeling a little redundant in saying it, is devoted to being with family. It’s also a great reason to have a holiday in February since the groundhog doesn’t really justify one.
This Family Day, my family is participating in a challenge that is becoming more popular every year. It’s called Family Day Unplugged. The challenge is to go without using your technology for a full day in order to devote all of your attention to your family.
Can it be done? I personally believe it can, and probably should be done on a more regular basis. My family is planning on doing some snowshoeing or skating or bowling together – something we never seem to have the time to do, and I’m really looking forward to it!
Are you going to take the challenge? Can you unplug for a whole day? If so, what does your family plan on doing?
Whatever Family Day looks like to you, I hope you are able to enjoy it with your family in a way that suits you. If you would like more information on Family Day Unplugged, here is Edmonton’s website for the event: http://www.edmonton.ca/for_residents/programs/family-day-unplugged.aspx
