This Holiday Season
For the most joyful and loving time of the year,
Happy Holidays. The holidays bring such cheer and happiness into everyone’s life. If you feel as though you do not have much time to shop, enjoy each moment and breathe. Once Christmas day ends, the commotion will stop and it is the perfect day to reflect. Reflect on the times that have the most significance to you, for how grateful you no matter the circumstance, on the year and how to make the next better, and most importantly yourself. How you can self improve for the years to come?
As the years past and times go on, we forget the one purpose of the holiday season; love. Love can be however you want it to be. For me, it is spending time with my family. Family time is the best time. You share laughs, cries, the happiest moments, and many memories together. Most families have traditions each season. Some love to travel, stay at home and host a huge dinner, or meet at their favorite place. For mine, we travel into the great New York City. We like to see the tree, walk around Rockefeller Center, light a candle in St. Patrick’s Cathedral for Pop Pop or Aunt Patsy and visit the Macy’s Christmas windows. Even though it is the same thing every year, it never gets old. There is something special about the way we all get together after not seeing each other since the summer. There is a happiness and relief to see everyone in one of our favorite places.
People tend to forget how important their family is during this time because it is so busy. However, family can be whatever you want it to be. It could be spending time with your best friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, dog, or yourself. The love and comfort you have for those people are what make them family to you. On Christmas day, when all of the hustle and bustle gets pushed aside, pop that champagne bottle or pour your glass of wine – it is time to celebrate one of the most joyful times of the year with the people you love the most.
