Escape from Reality:

Picture this: you wake up in the morning, the alarm clock screeches, and you desperately wish you could throw it out the window. Fear not, for the holiday is here to save the day! It’s a time when you can escape the clutches of everyday life and dive headfirst into a magical world of leisure, spontaneity, and utter goofiness.

Dance like Nobody’s Watching:

Holidays are the perfect opportunity to unleash your inner dancing diva or interpretive dance guru. Let’s face it, your moves might be questionable, but who cares? With each twirl and booty shake, you’re defying the norms of social acceptability and embracing the liberating power of letting loose. So, go ahead and shake what your mama gave you, whether you have the grace of a gazelle or the coordination of a newborn giraffe!

Food, Glorious Food: Ah, the holiday season…

A time to indulge in culinary delights that defy the limits of our waistbands. Whether it’s gorging on a mountain of mashed potatoes or engaging in a heated pie-eating contest, holidays grant us the permission to throw caution to the wind and embrace the world of gluttony with open arms. Just remember to save room for dessert; nobody likes a dessert-denier!

Family Shenanigans:

What’s a holiday without a healthy dose of family eccentricities? From Uncle Bob’s epic dad jokes that leave you groaning for mercy to Grandma Ethel’s elaborate knitting disasters, family gatherings are a fertile ground for hilarity and bonding. So, sit back, relax, and let the madness unfold as you create memories that will have you chuckling for years to come. Just be sure to capture the evidence on camera!

Unleash Your Inner Child:

Holidays have a magical ability to resurrect the childlike wonder buried deep within us. It’s a time when building sandcastles becomes an Olympic sport, and jumping on beds turns into a high-stakes adventure. Embrace the chance to dive headfirst into a world of imagination, where adult responsibilities cease to exist, and silliness reigns supreme. Remember, you’re never too old to chase rainbows or engage in a fierce game of hide-and-seek!

  1. You are so correct. Everyone needs a holiday/vacation every year… I’d love to have more than one a year. 🙂 We had a fantastic time with family at the beach this year.

    1. I truly love the holidays, especially the fall/winter holidays. It brings me so much inner joy. It brings back all my memories of childhood and family. I am sad after the new year when all my favorite holidays are over.

  2. I love getting together with family for the holidays and on vacations. We always have a good time and it is a good reminder to slow down, relax, and enjoy the little things in life.

    You are 100% right! All of us needs to escape from reality from time to time to refresh and relax our mind. Love this!

    There’s something special about waking up on a holiday morning and knowing that your day will be that much better. For me it’s all about the food and the people you spend it with x

  5. Yes, holidays are the best time of year, no matter whether it is winter or summer. I would have loved to have thrown out the alarm clock on multiple occasions, but we would have had to buy a new one then, so I never did.

  6. Everyone deserves a holiday. And that’s why holidays are important. It’s time to be yourself and as you said it dance like no one’s watching.

  7. Lovely post. I agree with you – everyone needs time to decompress and enjoy themselves, no matter what that is. Whether it’s during the holidays or another time. Sadly, in m day job, there is no such thing as ‘extended time’ during the holiday season. Retail is brutal and cares for nothing but money.

  8. I was listening to a radio show just yesterday, and they were debating the idea of changing certain holidays to regular business days. I say No Way! We all need an excuse to relax, have fun, and enjoy the holidays!

  9. Whew, I feel every bit of this post. I agree we all need a holiday/vacation many times out the year…lol. I love the dance like no one is watching, I do this often lol

  11. I think most enjoy having holidays as they really are the ideal time to let loose and really relax. I am hoping to go away this year as I’ve not been away for ages. Fingers crossed as it would be nice for the whole family to get away. It would be something to look forward to.

  14. We haven’t had a holiday in months!! I mean, we haven’t really celebrated the ones that passed. I need a break! You’re so right about that.

  15. Richelle Milar

    I am absolutely agree with this! We all need to have holidays to unwind rest and relax so that we can be more productive too!

  16. I especially loved the part about unleashing your inner child. As adults, we often forget how to have fun. But holidays are a great time to let loose and be silly.

  19. Having a holiday is really important we can use it so spend some time with our self or family or take a rest. I agree with this

  20. Holidays for me is to get some me time with family and to explore new places. Holidays for me is to learn new things which are difficult to do when you are in full workmode. Holidays for me is celebration …. celebration of life, peace and harmony.

  21. Monidipa, you have pointed out the essence of holidays so beautifully. All the pointers and sub-headings you have used, are so creatively written and bring out the best in having the fun in our holidays. Enjoyed reading your post.

The emphasis on embracing the whimsy of life and allowing our inner clowns to shine resonates deeply. The message to create lasting memories and find joy in laughter is a delightful reminder of the importance of taking a break and enjoying the journey. Wish everyone happy holidaying and a life filled with laughter and adventure!

  24. Love the way you have described what entails a holiday in such an enthusiastic and witty way. For me, holidays are a way to break the monotony of life just like festivals do, and recharge yourself spiritually.

  25. Holidays, like a much-needed breath of fresh air, bring joy and rejuvenation to our lives. They offer such a wonderful escape from the daily grind, allowing us to indulge in moments of leisure, exploration, and quality time with loved ones. Aah! I need a holiday now!!

  26. Holidays are the magical escape we all need! Imagine waking up without an alarm, leaving the worries behind, and diving into a world of pure bliss.

  28. Holidays are a great way to reconnect, with ourselves and people around us. I love the freedom and the guilt-free wasting of time. And yes, letting that diet go for a while too!

  31. Moni I loved your soulful weaving together of the best way to enjoy our vacations, I actually relived my last vacation while reading you buddy and that’s a win for the writer in you.

  32. Moni, completely agree with you. Holiday is the word itself says, relax, no morning rush, no phone calls, nothing. I am wishing to have a holiday on the beach. Waiting since last 3 year. For holiday. You said it true, food and it should be like dance no one is watching you.

  33. Although I enjoy taking holidays to relax, it’s often challenging for mom to find personal time while traveling with kids. However, last year, my husband and I took a trip alone specifically to have some time for ourselves. It was a great opportunity for us to unwind while our kids had a wonderful time with their cousins at their grandmother’s place.
