How to Celebrate Christmas
There are a lot of different ways people celebrate Christmas, and there are a lot of different traditions out there. Consider doing things that get you in the holiday spirit, like decorating your home or baking Christmas cookies. Invite over your friends and or family and watch a classic Christmas movie while sipping hot cocoa. Those are the simple little traditions that people embrace. There are other traditions that people bask in, such as volunteering at a local shelter or going caroling from house to house. There is no correct way to celebrate Christmas, nor is there one tradition that everyone does. Everyone is different, and every person celebrates differently. It is wonderful to embrace our differences and to learn from one another during this special time of year. Do not be afraid to try new things. If you have never been ice skating before, maybe consider putting on some skates and going gliding on some ice. If you have never seen Christmas Vacation, consider heating up some hot cocoa and turning on the television.
Reflect on This Past Year After Your Adoption
Sometimes thinking back throughout the year and reflecting on all the events that have happened can make for an enjoyable Christmas. Remembering all of the things you did and the memories you made can make you feel joy. If this is your first Christmas after putting a child up for adoption, you have a lot to think about. You made the courageous and selfless decision to put your child up for adoption. You carried your child for nine months while navigating the adoption process. You are a very strong and independent woman who deserves to recognize your own accomplishments. It is important to think back on all your decisions and to remember why you did what you did. Reflection allows you to process your thoughts and feelings on a matter. In this case, you would be able to process your child’s birth and the adoption process. Your feelings are important and valid, so it is time to recognize them! Self-reflection is a very powerful thing and can lead to healthy growth in the body and mind. It allows for people to make changes in their lives where they see fit. It is a very healthy and positive technique that we recommend trying at Adoption Choices of Kansas.
