What is so special about congratulations?

June 20th, 2016

Imagine you’ve just finished your graduation, maybe got a promotion or maybe it’s your birthday?, But there is no one around to greet you, to say “Congratulations! You did a great job” or “Wow! I am so happy for you.” Just wonder how deprived and dreary the atmosphere will be when you have no one to celebrate your achievements and moments with; you will obviously feel down and humbled and that is when you realize the true importance of congratulations.

Congratulating someone is a display of appreciation and joy for their achievements and good fortunes. It is a simple act of commendation through which you compliment a person and show that you share their happiness in the good fortune. The person must not necessarily be a special and close relative and friend, far from it, you can congratulate a completely unknown individual for things like good performance, winning a lottery or on the bus stop when they share their personal moments of joy with you while waiting for the bus.

Congratulating someone is an act that is deeply rooted in human behaviour; we tend to feel ecstatic when we see elated people around us. It is among the fundamental things in our character that makes us what we are.

There are many ways you can congratulate your loved ones in there hours of happiness, even when you are not present to commend them in person.

  •  Write a Congratulation Card and mail it to your loved ones.
  •  Buying flowers has always been a special way to communicate emotions.
  • Other presents like gift hampers, photo collage and soft toys can also get the job done, but these are generally standardized products and lack the ability to carry personal emotions.

When to congratulate (Identify the reason)

Most of the good things might not require any solid reason to be done but congratulations do, you cannot simply go to someone’s house and congratulate them for no reason now can you?

To make the moment special, you must precisely identify why congratulating the person, the reasons may include:

  • Birth of a newborn child
  • Moving to a new home
  • Just engaged
  • Newly married
  • On the occasion of promotion at work
  • Completing Graduation
  • Celebrating a milestone birthday
  • Celebrating milestone wedding anniversary
  • On the occasion of retirement
  • Completion of a project or target

There are several methods of saying congratulations that take little time and effort on our part but can really make someone’s day.
