The holiday season is officially upon us! Funny how time seems to move a little more quickly as each year passes; this year was no exception. It was another successful year at Cornerstone Speech Therapy. We continue to feel blessed each day by the children and families we work with. We are also beyond thankful for our talented, hard-working and just plain FUN team of speech therapists and support staff! We reached out to our staff to find out their favorite holiday traditions:
Katy Linscott, speech therapist
“I would have to say decorating the tree is my all-time favorite Christmas tradition! I have many of my family’s childhood ornaments, combined with new ornaments I’ve collected as an adult, and I LOVE remembering the stories behind each ornament as we unpack them. Watching my two-year old daughter delight in the tree, ornaments, and magic of the season is just the icing on the cake!”
Janelle Pickens, Cornerstone Speech Therapy owner and speech therapist
“We go out on the Friday after Thanksgiving every year and chop down our Christmas tree with the grandparents. We follow it up by a yummy home-cooked meal and decorating!”
Emily Ferjencik, speech therapist
“Our Christmas traditions include a Christmas countdown calendar, visit crazy Christmas light houses in Westerville, see the train at the Columbus main library, Zoo Lights, State Auto’s Christmas Corner…we are adding the Nutcracker to our list this year. We open a few presents on the 24th from Baby Jesus, as is the Slovak tradition, then Santa brings more gifts to open on the 25th. My husband’s “name day” is the 26th so he gets yet another gift… three days in a row for him! We also visit my son’s preschool Christmas program each year.”
Whatever your family holiday traditions include, we hope you enjoy the season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Cornerstone Speech Therapy!
