Make some memories
Because of the way our brains work, we tend to make memories in association with holidays. These memories get replayed over and over, especially when the holiday they are connected to comes around again.
Given that your bride, and your kids at home if you have any, are likely to make some long term memories over the next few weeks, I think it would be wise to find ways to make those memories good ones. What can you do as a couple, and/or as a family, to build good memories?
