The Holiday Season is upon us and at The Township Senior Living, we are celebrating in a big way! Many of the residents who call our community home spent decades of their lives creating memorable holiday traditions with their families, and it is our goal to celebrate all sorts of traditions to make our residents feel at home. Moments like these are what make the holiday season extra special.
We kicked off the 45 Days of Holiday Cheer on Thanksgiving with a Gratitude Book that allowed residents and staff to share thoughts on what they are most grateful for. In the weeks since, we have gathered to light the candles of the Advent Wreath to reflect on its blessings, enjoyed a cozy hot cocoa happy hour, polished our shoes for St. Nicholas, and learned about the Yule Lads, among other things! Our December Story Corner featured the children’s book, “A World of Cookies for Santa” and cookie recipes from around the world.
While many of the days are now behind us, the holiday cheer will continue through the end of December and into the first week of January, allowing our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions as well as new and exciting moments created by Arrow Senior Living and our own community team. To round out the 45-day extravaganza, the culinary team will take us on a special daily dining experience to highlight dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!
I was most looking forward to Selfie Day and Cookie Exchange Day. I loved taking pictures of our residents and making them smile. I was so excited about the cookie exchange because we have a resident who is a Chef that shared his special recipe that makes hundreds of cookies. Our residents had been looking forward to the exchange for several months. I love that it brought so many of our residents together and filled our community with the yummy smells of Christmas.
The tradition my family has done every year is on Christmas Eve. We always have snacks, hot apple cider, and watch Christmas movies after visiting all the grandparents. Then we open just one present before bed and lay out two cookies for Santa with milk. I’ve tried to carry on that tradition with my children. We have added attending our candlelight service at church on Christmas Eve.
We hope you have been following along on Facebook and Instagram as this joyous holiday adventure has unfolded, but even if you haven’t, it’s not too late to start!
