Why do I feel “Bah-Humbug” around Christmas?
If you’re like most Americans, you tend to get a little cranky around the Holidays- especially as you get older! Many times this less than cheery attitude is a result of loss, missing the “good old days,” and not having anything to do around the holidays.
My encouragement to you is to get up and find something to do- go volunteer and help! I love the old saying “Be the change you wish to see in the world” and I think this is very important around the Holidays. You could sit at home and complain or you can make the world a better place. You could start by calling your church, a local food pantry or senior center. Places like this always need your help around this time of year.
Stow-Glen Retirement Village welcomes volunteers of all ages at all times of the year, but especially at Christmas. Our volunteers help with activities, arts & crafts, church services and visitation. So, if you’re feeling the “bah-humbug” spirit this Christmas Season, and want to experience the joy of volunteering, give us a call! We’d love to see you in a Santa hat visiting with our residents or helping make ornaments.
