Sending warm holiday wishes to everyone. With the Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, HumanLight, and New Years packed into the last two weeks of the year, there are plenty of holidays to choose from and to celebrate. Each holiday has its own celebrations, traditions and rituals to draw people together and create warm memories.
You may decorate your home, give and receive gifts, gather with family and friends, drink champagne and bake cookies. However you celebrate, I encourage you to take time to savor the moments, to build memories, and to cherish those close to your heart.
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle caused by the many extra tasks involved in holiday celebrations, but if you take the time to pause and enjoy a conversation, to take a walk on a crisp, sunny day, or even to watch an old, favorite holiday movie together you’ll make more memories and enjoy the season more.
Especially if you’re planning a 2018 wedding, this is a good opportunity to put away your lists for a few days and concentrate on sharing the holidays with your partner. Talk about your memories of treasured childhood holiday celebrations. Discuss what traditions you might want to include in your holidays as a married couple. Do a little something to let your partner that you’re thinking of them at this busy time of year – an extra hug, a special thank you, a gentle kiss will be much appreciated.
No matter which holiday you celebrate, or how you celebrate, remember that it is the people you share your celebration with that mean the most. Wishing you safe and warm holiday celebrations.
