Christmas day is a time of great relief! The Christ child has been born! The gifts are open and all is complete!
The world has an eerie feel to it. All of the stores are closed. It is impossible to find a restaurant to eat in aside from the All You Can Eat China Buffets. (I threatened to take my children there for Christmas Day dinner this year!)
I can be a time of rest a relaxation. A feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment surrounded holiday decorations and a festival of outdoor lights.
How many people really experience this feeling during Christmas Day? Is it possible to retreat from shopping, going out and about, planning and accomplishing in order to rest for one day?
I have started to declare Sundays a no (or low) electronic day. I want to preserve some of what we experience on Christmas in every week of the year.
What about an electronics holiday,
An eating holiday
A social media holiday
A holiday from work, (yes, even thinking about it!)
A holiday from others,
A holiday from your home,
A holiday from your usual “role”
How can you plan to celebrate and take a holiday one day of each week in 2012?
