Sunday

As a child growing up in Northern NJ my family ate dinner together every evening. Even with that regularity there was something predictable and wonderful about SUNDAY family dinners.

One of my friends lamented that he was raised the same way but that SUNDAY dinner routine had disappeared in his family. I told him he could bring it back.

My mom came from a large family and she was the youngest of six (she had 4 sisters and 1 brother). I don’t know how it occurred but at least once a month we were at one of my aunts home for SUNDAY Dinner. Our house often reciprocated.

Today my wife and I included whatever family is available for a SUNDAY dinner. It is a tradition that I love especially in the fall and winter months. We combine getting around the table together along with keeping up with our fantasy football teams. We keep it casual, often setting the table with paper plates versus china depending on the menu.

Sunday Dinner

As I reflect on my childhood I realize that I was being influenced by SUNDAY family dinners. I also ponder that most of mom’s siblings all lived to be in their late 80’s or 90’s. Was that regular social interaction at SUNDAY dinners part of their longevity? I tend to believe meals with family contributes to happiness and longevity.

My wife and I realize that with five grown children of our own, living in three different states, we very rarely get everyone together at once. We still have SUNDAY Dinner even if it is just the two of us. Today it will be baby back ribs with our youngest son joining us.

Life is better when you have shared experiences and a SUNDAY family dinner is one of the best.
