|Feeling Empowered to Create a Joyful Holiday|
Developing your own holiday traditions and rituals can be fun as you use your imagination and creativity to have the kind of holiday that you desire.
I know people who consider their new holiday traditions with their spouses and friends to be their "real holiday" as opposed to their visits with their families. Exchanging gifts, Christmas tree trimming, or Christmas caroling in their neighborhoods are among the traditions that they've incorporated with the people that they enjoy being with on the holidays.
Of course, there are many people who enjoy being with their families. Not everyone had disappointing holidays. But if you're someone who dreads the holidays because it brings up sad memories, remember that you're now empowered, as an adult, to create the kind of holiday that you want.
I am a licensed NYC psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, EMDR and Somatic Experiencing therapist. I work with individual adults and couples.
