About this title

Synopsis:

From the Introduction: Through the centuries people have enjoyed to the fullest the laughter, games, feasting and companionship of holiday celebrations. Weeks of preparation centered around special music, decorations and holiday dinners. Rejoicing and gaiety were sure to be found. Of course, not all holidays are full of such excitement. Many holidays began as religious observances and are more serious in nature. Still others may have a combination of both the playful and the meaningful holiday activities. Regardless of what cultural, ethnic, or economic background a person is from, holiday traditions have been a part of it. And just because a person has entered a nursing home or reached a certain age does not mean they have lost the interest or desire to continue holiday celebrations. In fact, I think you will find that tradition, especially those traditions centered around holidays, become even more important as a person grows older. So, the question is not whether holidays should be included in your program planning, but rather what you can do to make them meaningful to your residents. I hope this book will revive your interest in holiday programming, provide you with new ideas for many of the holidays, and give you the skills necessary to plan and organize special activities. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
