Holiday Traditions

What are your holiday traditions? Regardless of whether you are an only child or from a huge family, was there something that your parents or grandparents did that delighted you?

Is there something that you have now adopted or incorporated as your own tradition?  Is there something even better that you started that is worth sharing? Please share it with us on ourFacebook page? We would love to hear them.

We certainly cannot ignore the spirit of Christmas regardless of our heritage.  As a Sikh married to a Canadian, Christmas is part of my adopted heritage. Some of my favorite memories are recalling the stories around the ornaments in our collection.They always bring a smile and delightful memories.

One of my favorite pieces of Holiday decoration is the Ljusstake, from Sweden. Better known as “The advent candle holder” is a mandatory triangular shaped electric candle holder which every Swede puts in their windows.  Its purpose is to brighten the darkness of winter and invite the spirit and goodwill of Christmas.

My sister and her Swedish husband presented me with one. It always reminds me of the wonderful Christmas that I had spent visiting my sister and her husband. And it is now adopted as our family tradition every Christmas.

Christmas this year falls on Thursday. What could you adopt from Abundance in a Box‘s Thoughtful Thursday?

How could you be of service to yourself or someone else on Christmas day? Here are some ideas:

1) Be the greeter and welcome everyone into your home. Ensure that everyone who enters your home is greeted with a warm welcome from you and your family including Aunty Gladys who drives you nuts.

2) Offer a drink and ensure you are of service to others.

3) Serve others generously with your actions and thoughtfulness.

4) Offer to set the table and help clear away the dishes. Remember to govern yourself, and to give the gift of your polished presence.

5) Most importantly, be sure to acknowledge the chef and toast to good health and family cheer. It costs nothing to give a sincere compliment and your appreciation of your host’s efforts.

My next Abundance in a Box© event is on January 21st, please note that it is limited seating and if you would like to attend please RSVP now.
