Another quick intermission in the muse posts.
I thought I’d share an idea for the holidays (which isn’t mine).
Missing Thanksgiving with kids and grandkids was a bummer, but the thought of missing Christmas is a heartbreaker. But who said we can’t simply postpone it?
For all those who are struggling with the decision about whether to get together with family and risk illness, or stay at home and pass the day twiddling your fingers in isolation, consider Christmas in July.
As the Grammy and instigator-in-chief in my family, I just set the date and booked a spot for a family gathering. In July.
We’re going to have a feast with turkey and cranberry sauce where we’ll pass around huge helpings of thankfulness. We’re going to string holiday lights around the fire pit and conduct a Secret Santa on the starlit deck. We might even decorate a tree in the forest!
Grampy and I will drop off presents this December, but the true gift of the holidays is time with our loved ones. It will happen. It will be special because we’ll all be in this together.
Stay safe and enjoy the holidays whenever you decide to celebrate them. ❤
