Cedar Trails Senior Living Celebrating 45 Days of Holiday Cheer

Category: Senior Living

Author: Sheila Gallagher, Resident Services Director

The Holiday Season is upon us and at Cedar Trails Senior Living, we are celebrating in a big way! Many of the residents who call our community home spent decades of their lives creating memorable holiday traditions with their families, and it is our goal to celebrate all sorts of traditions to make our residents feel at home. Moments like these are what make the holiday season extra special.

We kicked off the 45 Days of Holiday Cheer on Thanksgiving with a Gratitude Book that allowed residents and staff to share thoughts on what they are most grateful for. In the weeks since, we have gathered to light the candles of the Advent Wreath to reflect on its blessings, enjoyed a cozy hot cocoa happy hour, polished our shoes for St. Nicholas, and learned about the Yule Lads, among other things! Our December Story Corner featured the children’s book, “A World of Cookies for Santa” and cookie recipes from around the world.

While many of the days are now behind us, the holiday cheer will continue through the end of December and into the first week of January, allowing our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions as well as new and exciting moments created by Arrow Senior Living and our own community team. To round out the 45-day extravaganza, the culinary team will take us on a special daily dining experience to highlight dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!

From the 45 Days of Holiday Cheer, it is hard to choose a favorite. Last year we had so much fun making snowflakes and hanging them around the community. The messages that were written on the snowflakes were enjoyed by everyone.

My favorite holiday Christmas tradition is the time spent with family and friends. Coming to Cedar Trails to visit the residents and making sure that they are having a great Christmas is very important. Each year, my family gets together on a Saturday in December, and we make hundreds of cookies for sharing and giving.

We hope you have been following along on Facebook and Instagram as this joyous holiday adventure has unfolded, but even if you haven’t, it’s not too late to start!
