What is your favorite Holiday? Mine use to be Christmas, believe it or not. I still enjoy Christmas, just not like I use to. Holidays have become more of a chore than an enjoyment to me. Maybe it’s because of my J.O.B. I think mostly it’s because I just find that sometimes simpler means more.
I use to make Halloween a big deal. Poor Thanksgiving gets the short end of the stick, always. The summer Holidays are great, obviously because of the weather.
The older I get the more things seem to get out of hand with all the decorating and planning. I like easy. Asking others to bring part of the meal, supplying paper plates, and making the main dish are great for large get togethers. What does that mean to me? It means less work for everyone – dishes are the biggest issue. It also means more time together – playing games, visiting, doing.
My family enjoys games and talking. We enjoy hanging out. The more the merrier! It may be just watching and listening for some or it may be participating to the fullest for others! We argue, we laugh, we have fun.
I am thinking that summer time Holidays are going to be my favorite. They were last year. We are able to bring more families together when we can be outside. We love having the extra space outside. Grilling, playing basketball and yard games, fishing and swimming – the simple enjoyments of summer.
We all have different Holidays that we love. We have different Holidays that we have made special because of life’s changes. What Holiday do you love or now love because of life’s changes? Remember, it’s about family.
