3 Ways to Bring Your Family Closer This Holiday Season

After years of doing the same old holiday routine, many families lose sight of what the holidays are truly about. This holiday season we at Matthew Rathgeb Painting would like to encourage people to dig a little deeper and think about what the holidays mean to them. For us, the holidays are more than just a time to eat food, watch football, and receive gifts—it is a time to celebrate gratitude, love, joy, kindness, and family.

To help bring you and your loved ones closer, we have crafted this list of ways you can spend more quality time together this holiday season.


Throw a Party

No matter what the occasion, dinner parties have been one of the most successful ways to bring people together. This holiday season, instead of doing all of the cooking yourself and inviting family and friends over, you should use your family dinner party as an opportunity to spend more time with the people you love. Remember this party is not about planning the perfect dinner—it’s about enjoying each others company.

Show Gratitude

Sometimes we take our family and friends for granted, but you can use the holiday season to show the people around just how much they mean. Instead of buying expensive gifts, take time to write down what you appreciate most about the people around you. You’d be surprised at how much a handwritten note can brighten up someone’s day, and they also make great stocking stuffers.

Give Back

Sometimes one of the easiest ways to bring a family together and live in the spirit of gratitude is to be a blessing to the world around you. This holiday season, give the gift of charity by selecting a cause dear to your heart to give back to. Whether its building care packages for the homeless or volunteering your time to a non-profit organization, giving back for the holidays is great to remind your family and friends of what it means to selfless.
