GRATITUDE - Let's not forget to say THANK YOU!

GRATITUDE - Let's not forget to say Thank You!
 
We are at the peak of gift giving season, of holiday party invitations, of sharing dinners with friends and family. All those events are acts of love and as such should be thanked.
As we say Thank you, we show that we appreciate what has been done for us. It shows respect and consideration for the giver and rewards with affection all of the trouble that another human being has gone through, just to please us.
Many times we skip saying THANK YOU, simply because we are not sure how to do it, or don’t think it is necessary. Let’s start by saying that a THANK YOU is always necessary if we have been the recipient of an item (gift) or an action that was meant for our pleasure or enjoyment. Whether, we actually liked or enjoyed it, is another story. But, remember that a very important part of having good manners is showing consideration for our fellow human beings. This is as good a place to start doing just that.
It is also, a very good time of the year to promote this habit among our children and grandchildren. They are so fortunate and have received so many presents and acts of love, that it is our obligation to teach them how to show gratitude.
 
The above is a short version of an article I wrote a couple of years ago, but wanted to post it  again today, after seeing a wonderful quote by Elizabeth Gilbert regarding "thanking" and shared by Rixys Alfonso.  Hope you enjoy it and just keep saying thank you......
“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” - Elizabeth Gilbert

THEATER ETIQUETTE/COMPORTAMIENTO EN TEATROS



THEATER ETIQUETTE/ COMPORTAMIENTO EN UN TEATRO

There is nothing more exciting than attending a a live performance of any type and the holiday season is the perfect moment to have your children share that experience. If you have the opportunity, take them to see the Nutcracker ballet, or a concert of holiday music  or even a school choir presentation.  In all cities around the world these events are now taking place but attending them, come with certain rules of conduct designed to make sure that each person that is in the audience can enjoy the performance without annoyance or distraction while giving our respect and appreciation to the performers on stage.

These rules are known as THEATER ETIQUETTE, and here are some that we should make sure we incorporate into our children’s code of behavior. Follow them and enjoy the season with a visit to your local theater!

ARRIVE EARLY:  Try to arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the performance, that way you have time to take your seat without with plenty of time. Most live performances won’t seat you once the show starts and you will have to wait until intermission to be seated.

 

TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONES: Ringing cell phones during a performance are  a very serious annoyance! Make sure yours is turned off the moment you take your seat. Also texting during a show is distracting to those around you, so enjoy the show and turn off the phone.

BE QUIET AND COURTEOUS: All who attend a concert expect the rest of the audience to be quiet and courteous so that nothing distracts from the performance on stage. So postpone talking to your neighbor until intermission. Whispering, opening wrappers and singing the tunes are sure to bother those seated near you, so enjoy the event quietly and share your opinions afterwards.

LEAVE AT THE END NOT BEFORE:  Rushing to leave before the final note is played is very rude behavior and an offense to those performing on stage. Wait until the end of the performance and the applause has concluded before you leave your seat.

Keeping these tips in mind, dress up as much as you want, that is also part of the experience of going to the theater and give your children and yourself the special treat of attending a ballet, concert or play during these holidays!
 




COMPORTAMIENTO EN UN TEATRO

No hay nada más emocionante que asistir a un espectáculo en vivo, de cualquier tipo, y la temporada de fiestas es el mejor momento para que sus hijos tengan esta experiencia. Si usted tiene la oportunidad, no deje de llevarlos al ballet Cascanueces, o a un concierto de música navideña o a disfrutar de una coral infantil. En todas las ciudades del mundo estos eventos se están realizando por estas fechas, pero asistir a cualquiera de ellos conlleva ciertas reglas de comportamiento, diseñadas para garantizar que todos los asistentes disfruten de la experiencia, sin interrupciones ni molestias, mientras demostramos nuestro respeto y aprecio por los artistas en el escenario.

Estas reglas se conocen como ETIQUETA TEATRAL, o simplemente comportamiento adecuado. Es fundamental que incorporemos estas conductas como parte del comportamiento de nuestros niños. ¡Cumplan con ellas y disfruten de una visita a su teatro local durante estas fiestas!

LLEGUEN TEMPRANO: por lo menos 30 minutos antes del inicio de la función, garantiza que puedan sentarse sin contratiempos. En la mayoría de los conciertos no le permitirán acceso a la sala una vez iniciado el concierto.

APAGUEN LOS CELULARES: suena básico pero se nos olvida. Tampoco deben enviar mensajes de texto durante el espectáculo ya que la luz distrae y molesta a los que están a su alrededor.

HAGA SILENCIO Y SEA CONSIDERADO: Todo el que asiste a un concierto espera que las personas a su alrededor hagan silencio. Conversar, comer y cantar junto a los artistas molesta a los que están cerca de usted. Disfrute del espectáculo en silencio y comparta sus apreciaciones durante el intermedio y al concluir.

NO SE VAYA TEMPRANO: Es una gran ofensa a los artistas y descortesía con el público que usted se levante para irse antes que haya culminado la función. Espere a que los artistas reciban sus merecidos aplausos y después puede retirarse sin molestar a los asistentes.


Manteniendo esta sugerencias en mente, vístanse lo más elegante que desee, que eso también es parte de la experiencia de ir a un teatro, y como regalo para usted y sus niños asistan a un concierto, obra de teatro o ballet durante estos días de Navidad!
