It’s easy to fall into a rut if we do the same old thing year after year. So deliberately do something new this year to keep things interesting and glittery. A real Christmas tree, anyone? (We can never know the joys of a real one if we’ve never had one.) A new recipe? A new store to shop in? A new outfit? A new addition to the décor? A new tradition? A new movie to watch? A new place to go? A new skill to learn? Somehow, in some way, if we can incorporate “new” into the season (not necessarily in terms of purchasing something “new” but in participating in something new), we will keep things fresh and live and awe-filled.
