Christmas Countdown: Bringing Meaning to the Season: Day #11

This year for our Christmas Countdown I want to focus on things that we can do to bring meaning to this holiday season that we celebrate.

Alright so now that your schedule should be cleared of the superfluous good activities that you can take part of during the Holiday┬áseason, why don’t you use that extra time to create a new simple, meaningful, and fun tradition?

Why not pop some holiday flavored popcorn and watch a classic Christmas Movie? Or download a snowflake stencil and make simple but fun holiday decorations? Or read a different Christmas story every night leading up to Christmas? Or finally why don’t you designate a night to go walk (or drive) around and look at all the festive holiday lights that adorn your town?

None of these ideas seem interesting to you? Come up with your own! The point is to spend the time enjoying the season and the time you get to spend with those you love! The memories you create will be unforgettable!

From my Family, to Yours…

Wishing you Peace and Joy this Holiday Season

During this season that brings so much joy and so many good memories we often try to fit in every good thing that we can, often meaning that our holiday schedules are jam-packed and instead of feeling joy and peace, which was supposed to be one of the gifts of Christmas (remember Peace on Earth, Good will to all mankind?), we often feel stressed, overwhelmed and ready for the season to be over.
This year let’s look at our Calendars and set apart what is a necessary good and what is a superfluous good. Take some time to simplify this Holiday season, and it may be your best Christmas yet!
