During the holiday season, you may be looking for ways to celebrate. If you are non-religious, and also in recovery, you may be on the hunt for ways to celebrate the holidays that are safe, fun and not religious based. Here are a few ways that you can celebrate the holiday season.
Have a Family Gathering or Get Together
The holidays are often spent with your family. This holiday season, consider hosting a family gathering or get together. You can host a family meal, such as a pot luck. You can put together a family movie night, and show one of your favorite holiday movies and serve your guests cookies and hot chocolate. Or, if you are artsy, consider doing a holiday craft as a family, such as making ornaments and then having your family place their ornaments on your tree to make it extra special.
Exchange Gifts With Loved Ones
Just because you are not religious does not mean that you cannot exchange holiday gifts with your loved ones. Go out to lunch with a friend and exchange gifts while you are catching up. If you have a large number of friends, consider playing a gifting game, such as hosting a white elephant exchange or having everyone draw a name and playing secret Santa. This makes gift-giving more affordable, but just as much fun.
Check Out Holiday Decorations
Holiday decorations are a huge part of the holiday season. Many cities have venues where they have unique holiday decorations you can check out, such as the city Christmas tree or drive thru holiday light set-ups. You can also do it the old-fashioned way and drive through neighborhoods and see some holiday decorations. Brighten up your holiday season and put yourself in the Christmas mood by decorating your own home or checking out holiday decor in your local area.
