depends on the holiday really. the summer i eat fruit and no meat on the day, and usually spend it outdoors. Litha just passed and i spent the majority of the day outside either in the park or relaxing on my balcony. Yule on the other hand is a big potluck meal indoors. I don't have kids, but you could always include games outside, say a snowball fight at Yule, or even a snowshoe trek through the woods. the summer ones you could do hikes and a ton of outdoor activities, i feel the cooler months you need to become creative. especially the winter since it's feasting inside lol. need to practice moderation and healthy snacks. summers easy, watermelon, cherry, berries, and all types of fruit. winter holidays it's candy and sugar filled sweets with relaxing time.

I usually get worn out playing with the grand kids (even just watching them play). I don't have great mobility anymore. I do try to make healthy food to contribute. Squash casserole is a favorite, mushrooms and rice, in the spring - baked apples, too.

I try to add an element of fitness in. My daughter and I are lucky to have a camp that we attend that is only about an hour away. Earth Day is always the opening of camp for the season. You can go anytime, but winter is a bit cold to say the least. We always make a point to hike the longest trail there over Earth Day weekend and there is always drumming, fire circle and dancing after the opening ritual. As far as ritual celebrations, dance, dance, dance....always a good fitness activity :). I would love to see what others do and how they incorporate fitness into their celebrations. I also do try to bring something totally healthy, yet good, to the pot luck meal served after ritual.

Live well, play hard and enjoy life. It really is too short.

That is such a good idea! Many holidays I go commune with nature; hiking, swimming, kayaking, and things like that. Perhaps something like that could be added in?

Hi everyone!

With holidays approaching (Full Moon, Celtic month of Rowan begins, Februalia, Imbolc, etcetc) my family has been talking about making our celebrations more health-conscious.

Do you add fitness to your holidays? If so, what?
