The Shellhaas family (my mom's mother's mother's family) has had a yearly reunion for as long as I've known it. And alas, it's getting fewer and fewer people attending it as the family gets older. (Most of Gramma's generation, including Gramma and her siblings, is gone now.) It's sad, but it happens.
When I mentioned yearly reunions to elsaf and judiang, they thought once a year was a bit too often for family reunions. So I've decided to see what other people think about family reunions. So come, vote in my poll. And tell your friends to vote in the poll. I wanna know what people think! (I'm sorry if I didn't anticipate your answer to one of the questions - just do the best you can.)
Does your family hold Family Reunions?
No idea - they'd never invite me.
No idea - I'm hiding from them.
Would you go to a family reunion if they did/when they do?
Depends on which side of the family.
Hell, I go to family reunions that aren't mine - great place for free food!
Should family reunions be held every year or every few years?
Every few years.
No less than 5 years apart, please!
Meeting once in a lifetime is more than enough!
Oh good grief, why would anyone hold a family reunion?!?!
Do you think your opinions on family reunions will change as you get older?
It's possible - anything's possible.
I'm never going to get older, silly!
