Holiday Journals - Preserve Your Holiday Experiences

By Rick Chapo

The holidays are a great time to gather the family. Alas, your holiday experiences can fade with time. The best way to prevent this is to keep a journal for your holidays.

Holiday Writing Journals

Take a minute to give some consideration to the holidays in 2004. What sticks out in your mind? Now think about what you did for the holidays in 1998. Undoubtedly, you remember few things about 1998. The experiences you've forgotten are lost to time. If you had kept a journal, this wouldn't be the case.

Keeping a journal each holiday season is a good way to build up a history of family gatherings. It also keeps you from losing hilarious and cherished moments to the passage of time. Each holiday season offers a chance to see how the lives of families and friends have changed. It is also a time to reflect on the things you have to be thankful for, such as a sister or brother you haven't seen in years. Keeping a journal lets you take a snap shot in time of what you were thinking then.

As time passes, your holiday journal will grow in detail. It will become a great keepsake by acting as a time line for the growth of your family. You'll be able to look back at past years and read about the good and, perhaps, not so good times. You'll be shocked how to realize how much everything has changed over time.

As time continues to pass, you will inevitably lose loved ones as nature runs its course. I am not trying to be macabre, just realistic. Your journal will give you a detailed account of memories involving that person. Frankly, re-reading the good times can help get you through the tough ones.

Eventually, you'll have to come to a decision with your journal. Should you pass it on to one of your children to carry on the volume or just keep it as your private diary? Whatever your choice, you'll be thankful you kept a record of the holiday seasons spent with your family.
