Why Do We Congratulate?

We may have arrived at some point in our lives wherein we would wonder why we congratulate people with their achievements when most of these achievements have almost nothing to do with us and that most of the time, their milestones are none of our business– same goes for them towards us.

Maybe you have said “congratulations!” to a lot of people already but you seriously did not know why you were congratulating and why, even, were you congratulating just because everyone also is doing the same thing.  However, do not worry about having to ask this questions that makes you seem like an ungrateful person– questions like this are normal and it often comes to us at times when our eyes and minds are unusually more open and even hungry for answers to questions that are often left unasked by most people. You may also see Thank You Greeting Card Designs.
