What Holidays Are in December?
Here are some general dates of note this December depending on your background and where you live. Interestingly, there are no specific mental health dates in December that I’m aware of.
What have you got planned for December? I know it’s a busy time of year for everyone as the year comes to an end.
- December 5 – International Volunteer Day
- December 15 – International Tea Day
- December 24 – Christmas Eve
- December 25 – Christmas Day
- December 26 – Boxing Day
- December 31st – New Year’s Eve
To give you a jump start on December, I thought I’d share some ideas on how you can springboard off of some of these days or how you can better cope with some of the holidays.
International Volunteer Day
Helping other people and showing compassion is good for your mental health. There’s a side effect to helping and volunteering too. When you spend time with other people for a common good, it can be a stepping stone to making new friends. If you’re struggling to meet people, volunteering for a good cause could be one way.
International Tea Day
International Tea Day is the perfect day to take up tea drinking, especially if you live with anxiety. I have a whole post dedicated to the best types of tea for anxiety.
Do you celebrate Christmas Eve? One year we went to the movie theatre and watched the Chevy Chase classic Christmas Vacation. Some years we attend the Christmas Eve service at our local church.
Other years we stay home, drink hot chocolate, and take turns opening one of our gifts. It is a good night to be social, but also a good night to stay home. That may be especially true this year.
Christmas Day can be hectic if you must travel to visit family. If you live with social anxiety, it might feel like more than you can handle. Holidays in general can be stressful because of added social demands. Be sure to pay extra attention to your own self-care on Christmas. It’s okay to spend a bit of time alone to recharge. And, if you find yourself alone on Christmas this year, I have some ideas to help with that too.
Boxing day has traditionally been a big shopping event. Stores are bustling and people line up outside waiting for their turn at the deals. This year will likely be different because of social distancing guidelines. I’m predicting a lot of online sales. I’ll be checking for mental health deals, and will be sure to share if I find a way.
New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve is another holiday related to socializing. Most people will stay up until midnight to watch the year turn over. Some will do it with friends while others will do it alone. This year I expect more people will be staying home. If you’re feeling lonely on New Year’s Eve, I have a post to help with that too.
What about you? How will you be spending the holidays this December? Feel free to leave a comment below.
