Hey, Jolly Holidayers!
Christmastime is here. And with the season comes a wish of warmth and togetherness— time spent in the company of those we love. Though the days are short and dark and the nights aren’t fit for man nor beast, we brighten up the holidays with our laughter and light hearts. It’s easier to fill the days with cheer when we’re with our families and close friends.
I’ll be traveling to Milwaukee this weekend for my extended family Christmas get-together. My immediate family and I already celebrated our gathering, so this weekend is dedicated to seeing my cousins, aunts, and uncles. That’s why I’m taking the next few days off.
Every family has their own holiday traditions and, while any tradition is liable to change from time to time, some never will. It had always been my family’s holiday tradition to gather all cousins, aunts, and uncles at my grandfather’s house for general visitation, dinner, and a gift exchange that always resulted in a pretty wicked wrapping paper fight. We created lifelong memories in that house and so many great times.
But times have changed now. We’re unable to gather at my grandfather’s house anymore, but we still get together to make Christmas special. We all tend to get pretty into the holiday spirit, so there’s sure to be lots of food, festivities, and laughs! What’s most important, however, is that we all stop our busy lives for at least this one day and we celebrate with the people we love.
From everyone here at Everything Summer Camp, here’s wishing you nothing but the warmest wishes for you and your families’ holiday traditions. Enjoy this merry season and be sure to make it bright. As always, thanks for reading. I’ll be back next Monday with a brand new camp spotlight!
