Commemorating special occasions dates back to the early days of civilization. Pagan rituals were a part of our ancestors’ initiation ceremonies, the ancient Egyptians’ celebrated annual harvests and the Mayans were rather gruesome offering human sacrifices for various celebratory times.

Today, we find a reason to make the most of special events and occasions and celebrating with friends and family helps to make a mental bookmark so that we can remember these celebrations. We believe everyone is free to celebrate whatever they like and however they wish, it’s a good excuse to indulge and it can bring many benefits for all those involved.

  • Joining People Together - celebrations are a great way to bring people together.  This may be family, friends or both and celebrations allow people to become closer and show love on a deeper level.  

  • Instils meaning & significance - celebrations often recognise a special event or milestone such as weddings, graduations, religious holidays and festivals or even a new home.  These types of celebrations often go hand in hand with customary rites (a cake or drinking champagne) and each brings a connection to the significance of that occasion. 

  • Creates lasting memories - probably one of the most important of all for some of us, memories are something that we can hold onto for the rest of our lives.  When we partake in a celebration of some kind, we are essentially creating a mental bookmark for that experience which makes it easier to reflect on at a later point.  Taking photographs or videos of such occasions become valuable memorabilia and help to trigger the memories so that we can reminisce and relive those wonderful times. 

  • Something to look forward to - celebrations are usually a lot of fun and are filled with happiness.  People tend to let their hair down and a special occasion offers the perfect opportunity to socialise, eat, drink, dance, play and laugh.  The inner child can relish in the excitement of an upcoming event and it’s great for adults to experience this emotion as well as children.
