This is that time of the year when every other relation takes a back seat. It’s the time we spend with our families, especially cousins! It’s so refreshing to catch up on what everyone’s doing and catching up. Nothing replaces those moments. The whole visiting uncle’s place during vacations is a trend even today out here.
