Is two-times the holiday, twice as much fun?
For a “half n half” family blending different cultural traditions, religious beliefs and family rituals into any cohesive holiday celebration can be stressful. On the other hand, holidays are ideal occasions for revealing a family’s mixed heritage. Having two (or more) traditions to uphold adds to the excitement of planning and gives each partner a taste of the other’s cherished childhood memories. When children are involved, having a multi-cultural celebration can be an important way for them to experience habits and traditions they might not be exposed to in the country where they’re growing up.
