Booming into the holidays

I saw this in a vintage shop on Kauai and it brought back such memories! If you’re also a Boomer, you’ll appreciate what these Baby Boomer bloggers are sharing in this post. And if you’re not? You’ll STILL appreciate the great info. Read on!

Do you love holiday lights as much as I do? Tom Sightings went to Peddler’s Village this week to soak up the Christmas spirit. If you don’t know what Peddler’s Village is, then make a visit Sightings Over Sixty — and enjoy the Christmas Lights.

I draw the line at fruitcake. But some love it. Like Rita: On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about how she loves fruitcake. She learned to make it in Australia where more dried fruit is used rather than so many candied items. Read about what happened when she taught middle schoolers how to make it.

Sometimes, the holidays are tough. Four of my loved ones died over this holiday and so it’s always tinged with grief. If you’re having a tough holiday, I’ve got some helpful advice over at A Healing Spirit.

In much of the country, and the world for that matter, The month of December ushers in long hours of darkness punctuated by a few hours of light, if we are lucky. Rain, snow and general yucky weather can make even daylight hours bleak. But leave it to man’s ingenuity to perk up the darkness, as Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting reminds us in Welcoming Light Into the Darkness.

And here’s some handy info: It’s all about gadgets. Rebecca Olkowski with writes about the many wonderful medical wearables that are available to Baby Boomers to track your health…from cardio devices to apps that will improve your posture. They really ARE called wearables!

Until next week…happy holiday to you from all of us!
