Why National Sunday Supper Day?
Have you ever been in a situation where you were not able to recognize your relatives or nephews and nieces? In this fast-paced life, we often do not have or rather do not make time to get to know our family members and relations. In pursuit of success, money, and carving out an Instagram-worthy life, we tend to abandon the most important people in our life; our family. As we cross the threshold of childhood our family’s role in our lives begins to diminish and we become more dependent on friends. This happens because we value our peers more than immediate family members and we often take our family for granted.
A family is a building block of society and plays a great role in molding an individual. Spending time with your family and relations helps you to understand your roots and your identity as a family through the events and stories that shaped them. The sense of belonging that a family can provide gives you the courage to face the difficulties that life poses because you have people to get your back and love you no matter what. Life will not give you a second chance, but your family will. The common adage “Blood is thicker than water” is not discussing the viscosity of the fluids but rather emphasizes how a familial relation is intrinsically stronger than any other bond.
There are two great things in life, the first is family and the second is food. Food is an all-purpose magical remedy that can generate smiles, nutrition, and bonds. There is almost no celebration without food, and when all the family members come together, it is an occasion to celebrate. This is exactly what the National Sunday Supper Day is all about. It’s a notification that reminds you to break bread with your family and catch up on what they have been up to. Great food and some vibing family members are all you need in life. Though the official celebration is during January, it is a healthy practice that can be observed every month.
The founder of National Sunday Supper Day Isabel Laessig began the Sunday Supper Movement that encouraged people to spend time together around the dinner table with food and family. She started the movement through her blog, Family Foodie, and reached out to other bloggers to share their Sunday supper ideas with the public. Her amiable, compelling persona and her passion to build on family relations have been instrumental in collaborating with the big shots in the food and wine industry.
The Sunday supper movement has become a phenomenon owing to its strategic marketing methods and digital campaigns that strive to promote family values and bonding in a fun and practical manner. The moment has gained national popularity and in partnership with kindred brands and influencers continue to popularize the cause and its relevance in society. On this day remind yourself to spend more time with your family and share a meal with them regularly, don’t let your family drift away and lose out on the most valuable relationship you can have on this earth.
