Please, as you celebrate this holiday season, keep two things in mind:
Memories should be happy, not perfect. In ten years your children, your family, your friends will not remember if the tree wasn’t perfect, or the turkey wasn’t cooked just so, or if your Significant Other bought whole cranberry sauce instead of chopped cranberry sauce.
What they will remember is whether the holiday was happy or not. Don’t sacrifice happiness in search of a perfect holiday.
Secondly, no matter what tradition you are celebrating, this holiday is ultimately about love. Honour that. Kiss your Significant Other like you’re still dating at least once this season. Kiss and hug your children, and the rest of your family.
Happy holidays, and I’ll see y’all later.
