The Last Christmas Party

I don't know if it's because I've gotten older, or if it's because of all the Hallmark Christmas movies I've seen lately, but I'm feeling quite nostalgic about Christmas past. It dawned on me that the Christmas parties have changed over time. Some people have died, some have divorced or moved away... the Christmas parties I used to have as a kid, which annoyed me at times, are gone.

"The last time you're doing something - knowing you're doing it for the last - makes it even more alive than the first."
-Gloria Naylor

Nobody can predict which Christmas party will be the last. We could say that you need to enjoy every moment of it but the reality is that they're not always enjoyable experiences. It's when you remines that you come to understand that the frustrations of these gathering were part of the experience and their might come a time that you actually miss them.

If you don't consider yourself a family person, I would encourage you to put these feelings aside and reconnect with your family. Life is short!

Happy Holidays!
