The Holiday Season is upon us, and at The Castlewood Senior Living, we are celebrating in a big way! Many of our residents spent decades of their lives creating memorable holiday traditions with their families. Throughout the season, we intend to create moments that celebrate all sorts of traditions with the goal of helping our residents feel at home during the holiday season. Moments like these are what make this time of year extra special.
Last year, we celebrated the holidays with 45 days of cheer. This year, we’re going even bigger with a whopping 46 Days of Holiday Cheer! We’ve made several exciting additions we can’t wait to enjoy. A beautiful new tree, which served as the centerpiece of our Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony, was planted on the grounds of our community. On December 14th, we broke out our favorite dip recipes for a Dipmas Party!
While there are some new and exciting additions to this year’s traditions. We’re thankful for the moments spent celebrating our beloved traditions from years past. Among our favorites are sharing snowflake blessings, toasting hot cocoa drinks during our Marshmallow World Happy Hour, and singing Christmas carols throughout the community. We also continued our intergenerational Story Corner with a reading of “Here Comes Hanukkah.”
While many days are behind us, the holiday cheer continues through the end of December and into the first week of January. This allows our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions. Creating new and exciting moments by Arrow Senior Living and our community team. To round out the 46-day extravaganza, the culinary team will take us on a special daily dining experience highlighting dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!
Of the 46 Days of Holiday Cheer, my favorite to celebrate with the residents was the Holiday Tree Lighting event. It was the best way to kick off the season with our community. We had a fantastic spread of food centered around the “holiday marketplace” theme. In addition, we had live carolers and a visit from Santa Claus. I love seeing our leadership team come together to pull off such an incredible event. The joy and smiles it brought from our residents and family members were just priceless!
My faith, loved ones, and the season’s memories make Christmas special to me. I love spending time with family and friends and reflecting on the blessings in my life.
