It is hard to believe, but we are just one day away from Christmas and just over a week away from the end of 2022! So, today’s post is to wish you Happy Holidays for the festive season!
It has been a fun year. In some ways, we have been able to enjoy a sense of normality for the first time in a couple of years. I was finally able to go on the family holiday we had planned for 2020; although typically, most of us came down ill with covid whilst we were there. But, we were together – that’s what mattered!
However, this year hasn’t been all fun and games for everybody. It has come with its challenges for everyone. Although I think it is fair to say that comparatively, we can count ourselves lucky. For those living in Ukraine, I cannot begin to imagine what kind of year they have had.
In my household, Christmas is about family. Yes, it is nice to exchange presents. Ultimately, though, it’s about spending time with each other. We will be reunited for a few days over the festive period, and enjoying our time together. There are families who will not have the luxury this year. Whilst we are sat in our living rooms, or around our dining tables together, let’s take a moment of our time to remember all those affected. We are very lucky to be able to be together, and we should take a moment to appreciate that.
Whether you specifically celebrate Christmas or not, I wish you Happy Holidays! Enjoy spending time with your families, and any Christmas gifts given and received, and maybe even eating too much! I know I will! Afterward, we can look forward to rounding off the year and a fresh start in 2023.
