What causes the most stress, as you begin to organize your family reunion? For some people, the stress in family reunion planning is organizing the menu, which includes the procuring of items (which can really rack up the bill), the juggling and jostling of multiple tasks in the kitchen, the messy clean up of food and dishes, and figuring out what everyone wants to drink.

More Family Reunion Facts....

How often are family reunions planned?
The great thing about family reunions is that they can be planned whenever it is most convenient for all of the family members. If your family is spread out over a wide distance it may only be feasible to have a family reunion once a year or even every other year.

The bigger the family is, the harder it can be to bring everyone together. But you should not let distance or size intimidate you. With the right amount of preparation anyone can plan a fun family reunion that everyone will enjoy.

The key factor is making sure that everyone is informed well in advance so they can make travel arrangements and take time off from work. If your family is in the same region you may be able to have a family reunion or get together quite often.

Family time often takes a backseat to work and other obligations so it is quite easy to lose track of cousins, aunts, uncles and even grandparents. It should not be an emergency, funeral or wedding that brings everyone together.
