Nowadays life has become very busy. Every one is passing through hectic schedule. We have no time for our family members, relatives and friends rather we have no time even for us. Due to this fact, family get together functions are very important.
According to a maxim " Variety is the spice of life ". It is the nature of the man that he likes change in life. After doing a lot of hard work and passing through hectic schedule in daily life, he needs some relaxation so that he can acquire energy to start his busy life again. In any case of life, monotony and excess of work can affect the quality of work, so activities like get- together functions help the man recharge him.
Besides the previously mentioned advantage, one other advantage of get together functions is that people can come close to one another. They can discuss their problems with each other and get solutions of their problems; as the maxim says " one hand washes the other ".
Moreover, the other benefit of these functions is the enjoyment, entertainment, exposure and learning. Meeting different people is always an exciting and interesting experience. We can get valuable knowledge and explore new ways in life by meeting people. None of us has sound knowledge in every field of life so these get together functions can be best sources of learning by sharing and exchange of knowledge with people.
Although family get together functions have several advantages, but we have to admit some disadvantages of these functions as well. One disadvantage is related to money. The host has to bear the expenditure of organizing the function.
The other disadvantage is faced to the guests. They have to spent money on purchasing the gifts for the host.
Regarding to these disadvantages, one must know that every problem must have some solution, only the thing required to get that solution. We can minimize these disadvantages by avoiding extravaganza and adopting frugality. It is not a wise thing at all to spent money unnecessarily on the arrangement of the function. We can arrange the function in a low budget as well by spending money only on necessary things as arranging the function should be matter of hospitality rather than ostentation.
Similarly it is not necessary for the guests to purchase only expensive gifts. Gifts are the symbol of love and friendship, which are nothing to do with money.
One other point must be kept in mind that the purpose of these sort of functions is very positive, so it is totally unfair to include those things in these functions which are against ethics and morality like drinking, gambling, backbiting etc. We should avoid these types of negative and immoral activities and try to utilize these opportunities only in positive manner.
All of us want to spend a life, which is full of joys. We work hard to get money only to make our life happy and pleasant. Usually we try to get joys by doing big tasks, which are also important. We cannot deny the importance of them but joys are also hidden in some small things and tasks as well, so we should try to get those joys as well and get together functions are the best sources of getting these joys. Life is very short so we should not miss any opportunity to get joys whenever we find them.
