The holiday season is upon us. In full blast!
Cooking! Decorating!! Shopping!!! You barely have time to catch your breath. So what I’m about to tell you may not make any sense…
Find some time this holiday season to try something new!
Yes, that’s right. I’m challenging you to STOP, take a breath, and quit worrying about everything and everyone else. Find some time for a little fun. Carve out a few minutes to enjoy a little laughter.
Every year I promise myself that I will try one new thing during the holidays. This year, it was riding the Polar Express.
Remember that kid’s movie?
Well, there are several places that have now recreated that experience both for kids and for the young at heart (that’s adults who still act like kids from time to time).
My Polar Express experience happened to be out of the St. Louis Union Station, and what a hoot! We actually rode on a real train – it came with a conductor, elves, and Santa himself. We sang Christmas carols at the top of our lungs, and for one hour, I was definitely a kid again.
Check it out – Google it – and see if there is a Polar Express close to you. And if this doesn’t tickle your fancy, find something else that does. The point is to take a “time out” from all the holiday craziness and find something that makes your heart smile.
And please, share your experience with us. We just may be able to add a few new things to our own list for next year’s holiday season.
