THE HONEST BROKER: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

BY:  DIANE LOTT, BROKER    PARADISE FOUND REALTY, INC.

As the song goes, “There’s no place like home for the holidays”. No matter which holiday a family celebrates during the month, the home is an integral part of the celebration. It all starts by dressing up the house, both inside and out with decorations, foliage, and lights. This sets a special atmosphere for the festivities and gatherings. It can take as little as a few hours, up to many days, getting the house to look “just right”.

Sometimes there’s even competition between neighbors for the most festive displays on the block. Also, if the entire neighborhood gets involved, the homes on the block become an activity for others to get out and see every year. Driving and walking by with kids in hand to view the lights and displays that adorn the houses and lots. Once the decorations are up, the homes’ activity begins to focus its attention in the kitchen.  Baking cookies, pies and goodies for gifts and treats are always a holiday must. Creating the perfect gingerbread house to set on a table for a centerpiece is also a family favorite. The singing of carols and playing of holiday music adds to a homes’ warmth and festivity.

After the decorations and cooking are completed, then the big pilgrimage of people going to, and from, each other’s homes begin. Perhaps, people can have the opportunity to travel back to their childhood home for a family celebration too. “Home” is such an important part of family life and is much more than four  walls and a roof. We have an emotional and spiritual attachment to them with all the memories that have occurred throughout our time living within those walls. Our memories, good and bad, are the foundation to the love we have for our homes; laughter and tears, joys, and sorrow and all that growing that had occurred to its’ occupants. Houses are built…homes are loved and lived in.

Peace to you and to your family during this holiday season.

Be Well!
