Nostalgia and the Holidays

Nostalgia and the Holidays

Holidays bring holiday memories, and often a sense of nostalgia for good times of the past, perhaps even loved ones who cannot be a part of today’s celebration. Nostalgia helps us feel connected, both around the holidays and throughout the year.

It never fails that each year, the hanging of ornaments brings back memories from the past. Ones made by little hands now grown. Special ones that reflect our interests, given by friends who share our passion for (fill in the blank). We seem to have a lot of nautical and pet-related ornaments on our tree.

And finally, the food and traditions. Lighting of the tree. Spinning of the dreidel. Lighting of candles. Things that parents do for their children today seed their nostalgic memories of tomorrow.

“Happy-chrismahanukwanzakah” has become a comical way to wish others a happy celebration. Whatever you’re celebrating this season – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa. And Happy New Year. Thanks for making Fowler’s sponge candy and other treats part of your holiday memories.
