Traditions, Creating – A Bingetherapy Remedy

Have you ever looked around and realised “I can do this however I want to do this!” There is incredible freedom in building a home and life together with someone who is so different to you. There’s no template to follow – both families will often be disappointed in what you do, so do it how you want to do it! Make your own traditions, get creative, decide to do things that will really build you a happy home.

When it comes to making traditions that feed the soul, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg show the perfect recipe in Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. They prove there is fun and good food to be had in unexpected combinations. Even the set is decorated to show their completely separate styles – but somehow it just works! Take inspiration from how they clearly enjoy each other’s company, while drawing upon their own experiences and preferences that are miles apart.

For Anne, from Anne of Green Gables, creating traditions isn’t just about having fun though, it’s also about finding a home in this world. Anne can give comfort to those of us mourning the traditions we wish we had – a longing for the picture perfect version that is unattainable. Marilla and Matthew are inspiring though, they show the value of a calm haven from the world, and how building traditions with a new member of the family doesn’t have to be a big deal. They love Anne and Anne loves them, and the rest can be figured out.

Creating traditions in inter-families can often feel like something we need to get right, and that it’s tricky to find the way without a template. But Snoop says it all while talking about his friendship with Martha, “When we come together, it’s a natural combination of love, peace and harmony.” And that seems like the perfect recipe for creating traditions – love each other, and the rest can be figured out.
