Senior Living | 11/20/20
While this year has brought its challenges, there are certainly matters to celebrate — and the holiday season is the perfect time to focus on the joy, health and happiness in our lives. Even though social distancing may be the norm, there are ways for you to take part in the holiday spirit and celebrate safely. At The Moorings at Lewes, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the ways you are able to enjoy the holidays in Lewes.
Take a Drive to View Holiday Lights. Your neighbors spend time and energy perfecting their light displays each year — and taking a drive around local neighborhoods is a great way to appreciate their work. Turn on your favorite holiday radio station and simply cruise around to admire the light displays in the Lewes community. Be sure to check out the Lewes Lights website before leaving to get a map of registered homes.
Enjoy a Winter Walk. Temperatures may be dropping, but you’re able to bundle up in warm winter gear and still appreciate the natural beauty around you. Visit nearby Cape Henlopen State Park, or even visit a Delaware beach to experience the waterfront in the colder months.
Decorate Your Home. Bringing the holiday spirit into your home helps to completely immerse yourself into seasonal joy and excitement. Bring out the decorations you’ve had in your family for years or find a few new decorations to adorn your home for the holidays.
Enjoy a Holiday Movie Marathon. Curling up with a cup of hot chocolate and watching holiday movies is a time-honored tradition. Whether your favorite movie is A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street or even The Polar Express, be sure to set some time aside this holiday season to relax and appreciate the many movies out there that help to put you in the spirit.
Organize a Community Gift Exchange. While it’s true that we aren’t able to see friends and family in the Lewes community as often as we would like this year, what better way to celebrate the season than by making a new tradition? Organize a “secret Santa” gift exchange and arrange contactless drop-off, so you’re still able to share in the gift giving tradition in a safe manor.
As a friendly, maintenance-free continuing care retirement community in Deleware, The Moorings at Lewes is a special place to call home. Along with a variety of living options, services and amenities like engaging daily activities and delicious dining options are available that go above and beyond those you might expect at a traditional senior living community. Residents Richard and Jean Whoolley share, “Moving here, we felt we had done something good for our children and we know they appreciate it. They really like the community too. They enjoy visiting and are happy that we are safe and that we are enjoying the lifestyle and activities here.”
