December marks the middle of the holiday season and all of its cinnamon-scented joyous occasions. We bring in the new year surrounded by family and friends, enjoying good meals and sharing the best stories and challenges from the year. In the face of all the grief and turmoil that occurred through the pandemic, there has never been a better time to take a step forward and truly embrace the holiday season.
The majority of us spend the holiday season relatively close to home, nestled in a warm family abode with all our favorite people. While we all love and cherish these moments, there are some great opportunities to add to the family traditions as well! So, here are a couple of ideas to help you and your family embrace the holiday season this year.
Visit Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park - One of Monterey's best day trips is a ride to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, a truly one-of-a-kind place full of incredible natural beauty. You'll see where the forest meets the sea, rolling hills dotted with wildflowers, rivers streaming through the trees, and so much more; an excellent addition to the family holiday repertoire.
Start a New Tradition - Millennials are having babies, and Gen-Z is coming along fast too! Now would be a great time to put your own spin on the family holiday traditions. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Take what you already love and throw in something fun. Consider buying a karaoke machine and getting the whole family involved; you might find out that grandpa does a great Johnny Cash cover.
Invite Family You Haven't Seen in a While - If 2020 and 2021 taught us anything, it is the value of the relationships we have around us, which makes this a great time to reach out to family and friends you haven't spoken to in a while; to invite them in on the holiday fun. Relationships are the most valuable thing we have in this life; take the holiday season to enhance those who have gone by the wayside.
2022 is almost here, and with it comes all the surprises and struggles of another year. Hopefully, this one goes smoother than the last two, but at least we know that we have family there by our side if it doesn't. Your loved ones will appreciate you taking the initiative to invest in the family experience, and you could find yourself having some fun along the way. Find an auto repair center that you can trust when you need to get the family vehicle looking great for the holiday road trip.
