Assets in Action: Make lasting memories this holiday

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Now that the holidays have arrived, let’s talk memories instead of gifts.

What is your greatest memory from your childhood regarding the holidays? Is there something your family did that you can re-create, even if it is only once? Is there a tradition you can start that doesn’t take an act of Congress?

Now in a perfect world, I could re-create for my sons, the joy of being the kid of a Disney employee. My dad worked for Disney World and they would close the park down for an employee Christmas party. We were never rich, so it was dream to walk the uncrowded park, with no lines, small prices and Disney artists willing to sketch something for free. I still have a Winnie-the-Pooh hidden away safe until the day I am smart enough to frame it.

I think there are so many little things that you can do that doesn’t cost much, if any money at all.

Of course, one of my favorite ideas is baking cookies. Nothing makes me happier than to know what is your favorite cookie? I even have a special cookie I like to make, nothing spectacular, but memorable for sure.
