Whether Birthdays, New Year or any Holiday relevant to you and your family- the question is how do we internationals celebrate our cultural uniqueness.
For 25 years I have been working with families and couples who are internationals, who bridge cultural divides, and embrace religious intermarriages. Those of us who know immigration and acculturation will understand both the vulnerability and the gift of cross cultural uniqueness.
Here are few questions we can ask ourselves:
How does the culture/country you come from / your homeland / isolate you from others?
How does it connect you to others?
What values do you want to pass on to your children about their international cultural identity?
What is the language of your heart?
