Make this holiday season a meaningful one
Remember what's important this holiday season
Take some time this holiday season to spend with your friends and family.
Written by: Mike Peterson, alumni director / January 2011

Take time to count your blessings and be thankful.

Spend time with family and friends.

Slow down, relax, and sip some eggnog.

If there is someone you need to forgive, let this season of grace motivate you to let go of past hurts.

If you need to receive forgiveness from someone else, let this season of hope give you the courage to seek it.

Share a smile with a complete stranger.

Go for a drive with a loved one and gaze upon the decorative lights that brighten up the darkness of night.

Secretly pay the bill of another person at a restaurant.

Serve someone that you normally wouldn’t serve.

If you’ve been given much, share with those less fortunate.

Buy something from the neighborhood kids raising money for a special group, activity, or event.

Write a note of encouragement to someone you know is lonely.

Write a note of thanks to someone who has helped you become who you are today.

Send a holiday card to someone in the military.

Curl up by the fire and read a Christmas story.

Invite friends over to watch a classic holiday movie (Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, Elf, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, It’s A Wonderful Life, White Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas).

Volunteer your time at your favorite charity.

Explore holiday traditions of other countries and faiths.

Celebrate your faith and spiritual heritage.

Frost some sugar cookies and lick the icing from the bowl.

Pray for your enemies.

Lick a frozen pole... on second thought... scratch that last one!

Wishing you and yours many happy memories during this “most wonderful time of the year!”
