    Best regards,
    Here is one of its usages: We use "should" to give advice.
    e.g. You should brush your teeth before going to bed.
    You shouldn't smoke if you want to be healthy.

    Thank you!

    Best regards,
    I'd say like this:We believe now it's the best time you (should) spend and share the happy moments with your family.

    Simplify. Try:
