Seasons Greetings from #CityImages. This is the first full week of the most wonderful three months and our favorite time of the year.
And so it begins... The best trimester of the year. Regardless of whether you're using the ancient Aztec Calendar or not.
We enjoy these three months because October's still Hispanic History Month, UB’s birthday, and then followed by Halloween. November is Thanksgiving, a time to enjoy family and friends. December is Christmas, a time when everyone feels special.
Many people feel more nostalgic during the holidays because many memories are reawakened and relationships renewed.
During the holidays, families and friends get together to celebrate and reconnect; they get caught up on one another’s lives, reminisce, and browse through old photographs. Even from afar, friends and relatives get back in touch, with phone calls, letters, greeting cards, and posts on social networking sites.
Holidays remind us of special times and help us keep track of what has changed and what has remained the same in our lives and in ourselves. For many, holidays bring back memories of simpler times along with the sense of the security of childhood or the carefree feelings of being young, with fewer worries and stress that accompany responsibilities.
Music is especially evocative of emotion. Nostalgic song lyrics describe happy memories. The distinctive bittersweet effect characteristic of nostalgia is a positive appreciation of how much we have enjoyed, and, most importantly, how much we have loved and have been loved.
Most often, holidays remind us of people who have played important roles in our lives and the activities we shared with them. This is one reason why people who are away from home are especially likely to feel nostalgic during the holidays and why so many people travel to be with family and friends.
So what's not To love, folks?
Is there any way to slow these next three months down?
The most wonderful time of the year in #USA and on #EARTH
