It’s the holiday season again; an excellent time to slow down and spend time with family and friends.
My family celebrates Chanukah and I’ve given my kids a few presents, but years from now I doubt they’ll remember these presents (I know I won’t). Instead of presents, I think my kids will remember the Chanukah parties that we have every year: latkes, candles, and spinning dreidels. Every party is a fun and unique experience.
I think most people would agree that experiences make people happier than things. The novelty of things wears off, but memories last a lifetime. That said, I hope you’ll spend lots of time with family and friends this holiday season.
Experiences are more memorable than presents.
Here’s to life experiences! Give the gift of your time – a very precious commodity in our busy world.
