People spend too much on family celebrations such as birthdays and weddings.
What are importance of these celebrations?
Do you think people really spend too much?
In some culturs, people give more importance to family festivals and events, and it has been coming from their ancestors. As part these events, all family gather at a place in this events for fancy cloths and delicious food. However, this kind of big fat events depends on people financial status.and celebrate it, becouse of this younger family members get to know about the family. They feel joyful and happyness with their family while spending time with them. Moreover, they don’t hesitate when spending money.
One of main idea of these festivals is making special memories. In detail, events such as weddings and birthdays are very special moments in life, so people like to celebrate those with close friends and family members and make those days as special days in their life. For example, people give more priority to weddings in India and people spend much money in this events. Moreover, these events brings happiness into their family, that’s why they don’t care about money how much spending.
Other importance is people get off from regular work and get chance to spend their time with family members. In other words, some families work too much in regular basis at business and work place, so they get opportunity to take off from work, then feel stress free and recreation. For instance, employees the plan 50% of leave to attend family’s’ and friend’s weddings and other events. Furthermore, the recreational activities are more important in everybody life, so it is best time to spend great time.
To sum up, although people spending on too much on this, it is applicable to some category people such rich and well settled. In so many developing counties such as India most people are poor and middle class, that’s why try to spend reasonable amount on celebrations.
Nowadays celebrations of events like birthdays and weddings are all about spending extravagant money to display their wealth in the world. The essay will be dealing with the importance of the events and reasons behind excessive spending.
Events like birthdays and marriages hold a special place in the life of every person. As in one case the person celebrates being welcomed to the world and in the other case, the person is entering a new phase in life with someone whom they love. Undoubtedly, both of these are significant events in one’s life and in many cultures across the world these events are celebrated grandiosely.
However, nowadays, many people have made it as a grand display of wealth to the society in order to prove their supremacy in the society. Moreover, the events have lost the feeling of a personal and family affair, but have become an event in which a large number of people are invited to a mass spending fest and gather an appreciation of people from various societies. For instance, numerous documentaries have been produced by BBC highlighting the modern trend of the Indian weddings which happen at a very grand scale and involve a large number of attendees with money being spent into hundred or sometimes millions of thousands. These weddings also waste a lot of food which could have been put into the stomach of the needy and hungry people. Thus, these celebrations are not in any way similar to the weddings that used to happen in past and have lost their charm. It is only about highlighting the wealth of one’s family and purely a gimmick to earn a name by financially burdening themselves.
In conclusion, one will agree that these events hold an important place in one’s life and are to be celebrated on a great level and the spending on wedding and birthday celebrations are growing multi-folds and have become a big business market to cash on.
