Close your eyes, take a deep breath and try to recall your happy childhood memories. What are your unforgettable memories? Now let’s see if we share similar memories.
Malaysia is a melting pot of many races and hence there are numerous celebrations. Every festive celebration is an occasion for food galore and glorious fun. Surely, a picture of friends and family gathered together comes to mind, all connected through a sense of comradery. Getting red or green packets filled with money was surely the highlight of the celebrations for most children in Malaysia. Not to mention, the amazing display of fireworks lighting up the night sky. Christmas is fondly remembered because of the joy of unwrapping presents placed by Santa Claus under the Christmas tree.
Apart from these festivals, we should celebrate the victories that matter to our children - from baby’s first steps to his/her first day at school, and definitely graduation! All of these are once in a lifetime precious moments.
It is important to celebrate and perhaps reward every academic success, however small each may be.
