46 Days of Holiday Cheer: Celebrating Traditions, New and Old, at The Madison Senior Living!

Category: Culture & Traditions

Author: Alyssa Phelps, Resident Services Director

The Holiday Season is upon us, and we celebrate in a big way at The Madison Senior Living! Many of our residents spent decades creating memorable holiday traditions with their families. Throughout the season, we intend to create moments that celebrate all sorts of traditions with the goal of helping our residents feel at home during the holiday season. Moments like these are what make this time of year extra special. 

Last year, we celebrated the holidays with 45 days of cheer. This year, we’re going even bigger with a whopping 46 Days of Holiday Cheer! We’ve made several exciting additions we can’t wait to enjoy. A beautiful new tree, which served as the centerpiece of our Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. The tree was planted on the grounds of our community. On December 14th, we broke out our favorite dip recipes for a Dipmas Party!  

While there are some new and exciting additions to this year’s traditions. We’re thankful for the moments spent celebrating our beloved traditions from years past. Among our favorites are sharing snowflake blessings, toasting hot cocoa drinks during our Marshmallow World Happy Hour, and singing Christmas carols throughout the community. We also continued our intergenerational Story Corner with a reading of “Here Comes Hanukkah.”  

While many days are behind us, the holiday cheer continues through the end of December and into the first week of January. This allows our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions. Joining in on new and exciting moments created by Arrow Senior Living and our community team.

To round out the 46-day extravaganza. The culinary team will take us on an exceptional daily dining experience. Each day highlighting dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!  

Of the 46 Days of Holiday Cheer, my favorite to celebrate with the residents instantly became the Holiday Tree Lighting after seeing the sense of community it brought. Residents filled the lobby, sitting together, singing Christmas songs, and laughing!

Christmas is special to me for many reasons, but the thing that makes it most special is taking time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and diving into the holiday spirit with friends and family.
