The holiday season is a special time of year for many people, and part of what makes the season so unique is the emphasis on and opportunity to connect with others. One of the great things about the holiday season is the break many get from their busy lives to come together with their friends and family. Inviting friends and family over for a party to share stories and gifts, and creating happy memories is always enjoyable. Coming together with neighbors, or even strangers, to enjoy festivities or spread holiday cheer can also be fun and rewarding, especially when people come together to give back. Many outdoor events are available for those who want to be free of confined spaces, including bonfires and treats at Burkholder’s Holiday Market.

2. Charity

Holidays are special because this time of year grants many people the opportunity to give back to others. Offering gifts and kindness to those less fortunate is an excellent way to spend your holiday season. You can donate money or gifts to charities around your community, and giving toys to underprivileged children is a kind act anytime, but especially around the holidays. If you can, volunteer your time at soup kitchens, or donate food to a local food bank. The Burkholder Brothers team looks forward to giving back during the holiday season, as giving to charity often helps bring people together and spreads holiday cheer.

3. Christmas Traditions

Another one of the great things about the holiday season is all of the Christmas traditions we love to be a part of. Gathering around a fire with your family to watch classic Christmas films is a favorite for many people. Other families like to spend time cooking Christmas meals together, and baking delicious sweets and desserts is always fun. Shopping for holiday gifts and decorations is also a common tradition many families look forward to each year.

4. Decorations

The holiday season is a wonderful occasion to make homes more inviting and festive with many decorations. Putting up a beautiful wreath on the front door or stringing up colored outdoor lights helps set the holiday mood and atmosphere. Other decorations, such as the Moravian Star and miniature Christmas villages, are also popular among Pennsylvania residents. Of course, decorating the tree with ornaments is a classic family activity, done with the heady smell of pine if you and your family went out and picked a fresh Christmas tree for your home.
