Nostalgia for Christmases past can sometimes make our current holiday practices seem lacking. Children now grown with families of their own, loved ones who’ve passed, relatives scattered across the country and unable to be together. There are many reasons one might view yesteryears Christmases more fondly. But CareNotes author Karen Katafiasz reminds readers that their best Christmases are not behind them. She offers ways to remember fondly those celebrations of the past and rekindle the excitement for this year’s festivities in sections titled: Accept the present, Pay attention to Advent, Open yourself to the new possibilities that this Christmas brings, and Live Christmas each day of the year.
