Journaling Prompt #28 – Observing The Holiday Season

Everything is changing during the holiday season. Life takes a festive coat out of its closet and wear it for at least a month or so. Everything looks differently, the food is different, there is a unique aroma in the air and a one-of-a-kind mood – a jolly holiday mood. The best description I can find for the total effect of the holidays is: Merry Everything“.

For this week’s journaling prompt I ask you to open your eyes and register all the changes the holiday season brings with it.

Don’t let those fantastic changes slip by unnoticed. Don’t rush through that fantastic season, but take heed of every little thing that is different from your everyday life.

A while back I posted a series of journaling prompts designed to hone our observation skills:

Use those observation skills for recording the impression that the holiday season leaves upon you. If you followed the observation series before and wrote down your observations, you can also contrast and compare the everyday life to the festive days of the holidays.

    Thanks for doing this. I just found your blog and I must tell you, I’m *very* inspired. I’m going to make notes and post them all over the house to remind me to be more observant. Too often I tend to take things for granted. That’s a big mistake, I know.
