Model Answer:

Well, life has become hectic these days, and even family members do not get time to spend together.

Why entire family was together? and When it was?
I will take this opportunity to talk about the time when we family members were together after a very long period, and it happened almost two months ago when it was my cousin’s wedding.

The fact is that almost five years ago, we were living in a joint family. I was living with my Uncle, aunts and cousins, and it was a family of 12 people.

But for some reason, my father had to move to a city, and at the 11 very same times, one of my uncles moved to Canada, and the other Uncle moved to Delhi for business.

Where it was?
Because of engagements, we could never get the opportunity to visit or meet each other personally. As I said, it was my cousin’s wedding, and this was the time the entire clan was together.

We were excited about the marriage of the cousin and super excited about meeting each other after so long.

We welcomed and greeted each other warmly, and I hugged all my cousins. I was surprised to see how they had grown up in such a short time.

At this wedding we had a lot of fun together we gossiped for hours we enjoyed the food and the drinks and the best part was dancing with my cousins and the entire family to loud music.

In fact, we were all well dressed up for this occasion, and during this time, a group photograph was clicked in which all family members were standing alongside the wedding couple. This picture is more like a memory for all of us to be together after so long.

And the best part is that after the wedding, my uncles and their families stayed with us for a week. And during this time, we spent a lot of time together and recalled the memories of being together earlier.

So overall, it was the time when my entire family was together after a long time.
