As I have gotten older some Holidays have become just another day to me. Halloween I mostly ignore though my children and grandkids still enjoy making a party of it. Our biggest all together as a Family Holiday celebrations are at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Birthdays used to be big Family celebrations too but as everyone has gotten older this has definitely changed and our getting together to celebrate each person's Birthday is just not happening anymore. Last Christmas one of my daughters and her family could not make it down from Texas and my other two daughters couldn't seem to agree on when and what to do so everything was kind of thrown together at the last minute and just wasn't the same for any of us. This Christmas my daughter and her family are living here again so I'm hoping that our celebration will be a good one again. But things are changing and awhile back there was talk of going up to Tennessee the day after Christmas and renting a cabin for the whole Family for a week. When my middle daughter discussed this with me....I told her to count us out. For one thing it would cost more than we can afford at this time, but even more than that we can't see being "cooped up" in a snow laden cabin for a week with at least 15 other people...even if they are Family. We are waiting for the everyone go together to DisneyWorld for Christmas celebration. That's not happening this year because our youngest grandchild just turned 1 and he would not really be able to enjoy this place yet. Anyway, as the years go by and we watch our children and grandchildren's lives get busier and busier...our used to be celebrations get smaller and fewer in number. And it's getting harder for my husband and I to do night time celebrations so sometimes we just miss those too. Things are definitely changing and Holidays and Birthdays and the way we used to celebrate them...are changing too. I might not want them to be becoming like just another day....but it seems for the last couple of years that is happening anyway.
