46 Days of Holiday Cheer: Celebrating Traditions at The Township Senior Living!

Category: Culture & Traditions

Author: Lorie Houghton, Resident Services Director

The Holiday Season is upon us, and we celebrate in a big way at The Township Senior Living! Many of our residents spent decades creating memorable holiday traditions with their families. Throughout the season, we intend to create moments that celebrate all sorts of traditions. With the goal of helping our residents feel at home during the holiday season. Moments like these are what make this time of year extra special. 

Last year, we celebrated the holidays with 45 days of cheer. This year, we’re going even bigger with a whopping 46 Days of Holiday Cheer! We’ve made several exciting additions we can’t wait to enjoy. A beautiful new tree, which served as the centerpiece of our Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. The tree was planted on the grounds of our community. On December 14th, we broke out our favorite dip recipes for a Dipmas Party!  

While there are some new and exciting additions to this year’s traditions. We’re thankful for the moments spent celebrating our beloved traditions from years past. Among our favorites are sharing snowflake blessings, toasting hot cocoa drinks during our Marshmallow World Happy Hour, and singing Christmas carols throughout the community. We also continued our intergenerational Story Corner with a reading of “Here Comes Hanukkah.”  

While many days are behind us, the holiday cheer continues through the end of December and into the first week of January. This allows our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions and new and exciting moments created by Arrow Senior Living and our community team. To round out the 46-day extravaganza! The culinary team will take us on a special daily dining experience. Each day highlighting dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!  

Of the 46 Days of Holiday Cheer, my favorite to celebrate with the residents was the Holiday Tree Lighting. All our department heads and staff came together to make the evening great. The food was delicious, our music was great, and having Santa and Mrs. Claus just set the tone for the lighting was great. Our residents haven’t stopped talking about it. The residents and staff are truly like one big family, and I love that we get to celebrate traditions with everyone.

Christmas is a special time to me because we celebrate Jesus. We have plays at church and sing lots of Christmas songs. Also, everyone seems happier during the holiday season. Spending time with family, friends, and my residents makes for the best Christmas ever.
