Welcome home by definition is welcoming a person home, celebrating the return of a person, and an expression of welcome made at a person’s homecoming. There are a lot of reasons that a person gets welcomed home –  they could be coming home from serving in the military, coming home from college, just got over a sickness or almost recovered from an injury that had them hospitalized, moving back to their hometown, celebrating the freedom of someone that just came home after being in jail or prison, welcoming someone home that was away on business, celebrating the purchase of a new home, or even from coming home after being on vacation.

A welcoming someone can be defined into a variety of ways such as simply just greeting them, showing them that you are there to support them, or even showing how much you have missed them while they were away. Home means many different things to people, a home could simply just be a place to live for some people but for others home means where their family is, and where they get the most support.
