♫“Here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus lane…”♫ Ok, ok – maybe not quite yet. But, the holidays are fast approaching. The stores are displaying all of their spookiest decorations and costumes for Halloween. Pumpkin scented candles are filling the air and the grocery stores are stocking up on turkeys. I have even seen some ornaments hanging proudly just waiting for a shopper to snatch them up and display them on their tree at home. Yes – ready or not – it’s that time of the year.
Stay Calm and Party On
But, the holidays aren’t just about the decorations and the shopping. Oh sure, we all get very busy doing all of those things. I’m guilty of that myself. But, the holidays can also be a wonderful time to spend with family and friends. It should be a time to enjoy those around you.
You could have a costume party with a theme (for example – everyone dress as: their favorite movie character, from a certain decade, etc.). You could host a cookie exchange party in which everyone brings cookies to share. Or, maybe you could host Thanksgiving dinner along with a friendly football game in the backyard. But whatever you choose, take the time to slow down and enjoy each other.
