Keep the holiday spirit alive [UPDATED]Published 10:05am Friday, December 20, 2013 Updated 12:09pm Friday, December 20, 2013
With the last weekend before Christmas looming, don’t let the mad rush to finish up rob you of your Christmas spirit.
It would be easy to do: running out for the last few gifts or stocking stuffers; the flurry of gift wrapping, feeling the estra stress of company and meal preparation; the house cleaning … the list could go on.
There are many moments to cherish, however, and it behooves us all to take the time for those moments.
For example, let a couple things on your list slide and enjoy these things with your family:
• Take a drive around town, include a cruise down main street. Many homeowners and city have done a beautiful job of decorating and the city is quite festive.
• Attend tonight’s concert by Linda Mellon and Wendy Erlandson and their friends at A Center for the Arts. The “Amazing Grace” concert, with its holiday theme is sure to remind of the reason for the season.
These are just a couple of things to help keep you in the holiday spirit. Most importantly, relax and enjoy the time with your family. They won’t remember how clean the house is, but they will remember the memories you create together. Merry Christmas to all.
