Retirement can change many things in your life – hopefully for the better! You have more free time, you’re able to relax and have less responsibilities. As all of these aspects are shifting in your life, you may find yourself re-thinking how you will be celebrating the holidays.
While a move to a retirement community is certain to change some family traditions, it can be a great time to reconsider the things your family has been doing for years. The holiday time is stressful enough, so this can present an opportunity to eliminate “stuff” and truly value each other’s presence, spending more time together rather than lose time by all of the typical holiday to-do lists.
