Stories of celebration

They come out each Christmas, those very domestic angels, hanging above the fireplace with their gingerbread-tray and cake-mixing bowl, and the rotund Santa Claus between them.

In front of the bookshelves, my mother counts the Christmas cards, clicking on the small grey clicker-counter in her hand, a relic of the long-closed library. “One hundred and twenty four so far this year”, she says, proudly. She’ll head out soon to a family gathering, with all the generations there – her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren too. An everyday ritual, returning every year: a quiet celebration of another year’s passing.

What do you celebrate, in your family, your community, your business? And why? Where, when, and how? – how do you celebrate? What stories do those celebrations bring up? What memories do they bring back for you? What kinds of meaning?

What are your stories of celebration? Use Zahmoo to help you capture and keep those stories for your future generations.
