Does Ernst celebrate holidays?
If so, how often and with whom?
I ask because I was thinking about Christmas celebrations the other day, and realized that I celebrate fewer holidays these days. Most holidays I just end up working, especially since my night shift makes the actual impact of a day of socializing, reflection, and rest less meaningful. I also used to celebrate some holidays with my Dad's side of the family, but due to lack of interaction I only celebrate with my Mom and Stepdad's extended family.
I've also noticed that due to work/time constraints by many members of the family, we rarely celebrate the holiday on the proper day, but instead move it to the weekend before or after. This was rarely the case in the past, but is now the norm.
Basically, I celebrate the following:New Years
- Alone/online, the last few years working on Gachimuchi collabs and the likeEaster
- With Mom and sometime Stepdad's familyMother's Day
- Mom and Stepdad, and visiting Grandma in the nursing home (she has advanced Alzheimers, visit her regularly regardless)
