The days are going by quickly now (obviously too quickly since I’m posting so late!) I don’t know about your house, but the anticipation seems to be growing by the hour. You can go back to day one to read about why I’m sharing ten days of Advent ideas, as well as catch up on any days you missed. It’s all about focusing on the reason for the season and spending time together with our loved ones during the holidays.
While most of us are enjoying the holidays with our family members, there are countless others giving up their day. Fire fighters, police officers, nurses & doctors, and EMTs are all working on the holidays to make sure the rest of us are safe. This season, let’s take time to say thank you.
Thank a civil servant
It takes hardly any time to drop off some cookies or brownies at your local fire or police station, but what a nice way to show our appreciation to those who help to keep us safe each day. If your budget is extra tight this Christmas, a handmade card is an equally nice way to say thanks. You could bring some holiday treats to your local ER, or even just send a note of gratitude to someone you know will be giving up their holiday.
