The spirit of Christmas is in the air at our senior living community

By / December 13, 2018 Uncategorized

As we observe Christmas at Brethren Village, we identify with the sentiment of Winston Churchill, who said, “Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing, but of reflection.”

Like Christmases over several centuries and in many countries, our senior living celebrations blend merriment and meditation, marking both the secular and sacred significance of the holiday season.

Drive by Brethren Village at night, and you’ll see our community illuminated with sparkling lights. As you make your way around the Village itself, you’ll see doors adorned with wreaths and cheerfully decorated lawns and trees.

But inside is where you will find the true spirit of Christmas. Throughout December, Residents of Brethren Village enjoy Advent teas, Christmas parties, concerts by the Brethren Village Choir, a Christmas sing-along, and our spirit-lifting Christmas Eve Service.

A fun-filled highlight of our holiday season is the Brethren Village Auxiliary’s annual Christmas Craft Bazaar and Cookie Sale, with proceeds supporting projects and resources to benefit Residents.

At Brethren Village, we like sharing holiday feelings of anticipation and cheer with family members and friends. We welcome visitors at all times, but especially at the holidays. The presence of children, in particular, brings warm smiles and adds to our multigenerational family environment. To facilitate family visits, we have a number of common areas where families can gather to meet to celebrate the holidays. And, we invite families to enjoy the cuisine at any of our pleasant on-campus dining venues. In other words, at Brethren Village, the more the merrier!

There’s a good chance that our senior living residential community is just what you have in mind.
