Why Hashem prohibited Melacha on Yom Tov

Why Hashem prohibited Melacha on Yom Tov?[1]

The purpose of Yom Tov is for the Jewish people to remember the great miracles that Hashem performed for them and their forefathers, and for them to give over this history to their children and grandchildren. This is why the Torah prohibited one from doing Melacha on Yom Tov, in order so he can spend time with his family and convey to them the above maters.
