I love Thanksgiving. It is my favorite holiday of the entire year. I try to live a life filled with gratitude, and it’s special to have a day set aside for giving thanks – even though I practice it every day.
What are the best Christmas gifts for grandma? Well, as the leader of, Sixty and Me, a community with 100,000s of grandmas, let me start by telling you what NOT to get… candles, slippers, clothes or bath salts! If we wanted any of those things, we would get them ourselves.
Ah, Thanksgiving! A time of celebration, of gratitude and family get-togethers.
For some, getting together with extended family is a joyous tradition. For others, it’s joyous only some of the time. Not all family is created equal, however.
Halloween is relatively new to the UK – well, as a holiday type celebration it is!
We’ve had All Hallow’s Eve as an ongoing ‘thing’ for hundreds of years, but it’s only caught on in a big way in the last couple of years.
Fall is finally here! Well, we may have a few weeks until the official season change, but the crisp, fresh air, the already fallen leaves and my hankering for pumpkin everything all suggest that Fall has unofficially arrived.
“What do you want for your birthday?” That’s a tough one, isn’t it? But seriously, the last thing retired people need is more stuff. It’s a time when we are trying to get rid of all the items we no longer use. In a few years, we expect to move to a smaller place, right?
I hope you noticed that I didn’t title this article, “How to Survive the Holidays, Alone.”
No! This is about making sure to celebrate the holidays if you are alone.
It is our favourite time of the year again! The holiday spirit is taking over and we feel our hearts getting warm and filled with love, gratitude and joy.
It is a season when we remind ourselves of just how little it takes to be happy with our loved ones by our side. However, it might be a bit puzzling to figure out the perfect gift that would be thoughtful and serve as a sign of affection.
