What 3 Things Do You Want to Do Over the Holidays? YMM #44

Welcome! Believe it or not, the holidays are fast approaching! Today’s topic we want you to consider involves putting some thought into YOUR holiday celebrations as a couple.

*What are three things that you want to make sure that you personally get to do during the holidays?

Consider the following about this topic:

  • This topic must be agreed upon together, and requires discussion, negotiation, and planning.
  • It’s a critical conversation that speaks to our wants, needs, desires, values, and beliefs.
  • The holidays are a great opportunity for you and your spouse to start your own traditions together.
  • Each celebration is important: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
  • Mapping things out NOW may eliminate conflict LATER.
  • There may be a conflict between partners, but it’s a time to be sacrificial and willing to compromise.
  • This is an opportunity to drill deep about beliefs concerning religion and the holidays.
  • “Just because it’s different doesn’t mean that it’s wrong.”

To complete this assignment, do the following:

  • Write down your three things.
  • Share them together with your partner.
  • Negotiate and create a plan.
  • Find at least one NEW tradition to start together.

Remember, the holidays are coming FAST! You cannot wait to address this issue in your relationship. The time is now!
