Many of us have old ‘traditions’ that we hang on to during the holiday season. Decorations must be up by a certain time, presents must given and received in a certain way, brussel sprouts must be served and so on and so on. The reality is that everyone has different ways of doing things and there is no right way. Some of these rules and ‘traditions’ are lovely of course and create a connection through the generations of a family. However some may simply just get in the way of enjoying yourself.
So perhaps this year it might be worth making a note of some of ‘the rules’ and asking where they actually come from and whether anyone actually values them. For every tradition, some one at some time has thought it would be a good idea for some reason – some ‘Positive Intention’ that made sense at the time. Do those reasons and intentions still exist? Even if they do are they valued by the people around you? Perhaps it’s time to do things differently? Perhaps it’s time to create some new traditions that really celebrate what Christmas means to you…
