Where Did the Holiday Magic Go?

Remembering What’s Magical About This Time of Year

It’s December, and for many of us, one day sticks out among the rest: December 25. Christmas is a day of joy, laughter and family gatherings. It’s also a day where emotional and financial strains culminate after weeks, if not months, of worry. On Christmas, those who celebrate follow the tradition of opening gifts found under a tree. It’s an age-old tradition, but is it still a true image of Christmas in today’s society? Where did the holiday magic go?

A Not-So-Magical Shift

There is a shift taking place in many homes and it’s on a global scale. It’s an insidious shift, and if left to fester, we will see an irreversible change in how families engage with each other in the future. It’s sad to think about.

Replaced by Technology

Each day we are given the gift of life in the present moment, and time is more precious than money. You can always make more money, but you cannot make more time when the day is done. That’s why it’s shocking to me that a family can sit in the same room and not talk or engage each other in any way. They aren’t even enjoying a seasonal movie together. Instead, every member of the family is focused on their phone, texting, surfing the Internet, playing games, or communicating with others over social media.

Isolated and Detached

Christmas used to be about families spending time together. Unfortunately, technology makes us isolated and detached. We are detached and isolated from one another. In my opinion, children get the worst of this. Their parents are ignoring them and barely looking up from their phones. And of course, children copy what their parents do. But, it doesn’t have to be this way.

The Adults of Tomorrow

Children are the adults of tomorrow. What have they got to draw upon in terms of their upbringing? What communication skills are we passing down to them? How are they going to become balanced, confident and outgoing adults?

The Gift of Time, Attention and Love

The greatest gift we can give the children in our lives is the gift of our time, attention and love. That doesn’t cost a cent! We just need to stop giving it to our phones. So this Christmas, instead of telling the children to wait while you check your social media, send a text or update your Facebook status, spend Christmas reciting ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, or watching a family friendly holiday movie. Let’s bring the magic back to the season. It only requires the willingness to give time and attention to your loved ones in whatever way you can!

Happy Holidays!

    Beautiful article and a great truth. Where will the adults of tomorrow learn the “art of conversation”? It breaks my heart when I go out to dinner and see the parents at the next table totally absorbed in their devices while their small children are literally begging for their attention. My 20-something nieces & nephews can barely participate in dinner conversation any longer, the teenagers struggle with anything more than single-syllable responses. Christmas has become “hurry & open your gifts and bolt through dinner so we can post & text about what a great holiday we’re having.” Sad. Hopefully many will see themselves in this article and consider a return to being present.

    wonderful article James too bad it’s necessary, hopefully our race will start to use social media in a more responsible way and adjust to technology before we ruin too many generations. The new trend is rude and disruptive to socialising when the bell or whistle goes off and it has to be checked, even right in the middle of a sentence one is having with a real live person, then something is definitely
    wrong. SO lets hope we smarten up soon.
