What's a Family Reunion?

By

Definition:

A family reunion is an organized event that brings together family members that only get to see one another on a very limited basis. Usually family reunions cut across all generations from great grandparents down to the smallest great grandchildren. Aunts, Uncles, and cousins will all be part of the fun. The only qualification for a family reunion is a common set of ancestors, but how far back that is traced is entirely up to the organizers of the reunion. Food, fun, and reminiscing are all activities that can be expected at a family reunion.

The location for a family reunion will depend on the size of the group, where the different families live, and the budget of the group. The larger a family reunion will be, the more planning it will take for this event.
