The season of celebrations has just kick-started and we are oozing with our festive mood. When you start counting you would be surprised how much we party in the winters, be it Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year or the frosty season itself. Keeping the jubilant mood on I often think why do we celebrate so much!
We have been celebrating since the very start of our existence whenever we experienced success, be it big or small. We cherished when we first made fire and cooked meat, we applauded ourselves for inventing the wheel and did the same whenever we conquered another piece of land. This habit wasn’t restricted to happy moments solely as we also gathered to mourn deaths in funerals or to remember catastrophes. Scientists went on to study what lead the humans then and now observe moments and days so ardently. The answer was thoroughly positive.
As was learned, celebrations enhance our sense of gratitude which results in enthusiasm, exaggerated alertness, optimism, determination and obviously gratefulness itself. We tend to enjoy life more and feel that we live for a meaning. Events also strengthen social values and cultural unity, and also help us mingle more willfully. We learn to thank people around us and this behavior reciprocates. Remembering happenings and days let us make our memories stronger.
We also learn to know that hardships are a part of life and we try to find the options to overcome our errors. In essence we develop a fighting nature and take more challenges.
You have all the right to enjoy!!
