Take your family to parades. Whether it be for Saint Patrick's a Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas or whatever they may have in your town, take your kids to the parade. It will show them that you all can have a great time together as a family and celebrate events together outside your home and not just around your dining room or kitchen table. It also gives you the opportunity to share history with your children. The family traditions you create and the memories you make will last a lifetime. It's the right thing to do and it models the way for others.
