Vol. 13 No. 4 (2023): recreation


The winter issue of Recreation journal is always special because it is probably the most magic time of the year. Advent, the Christmas spirit, the lights and carols, the smell of mulled wine and chimney cakes, break the usual end-of-year closing and end-of-year rush. In preparation for Christmas Eve, and in the rush of everyday life, we take a brief moment on Sundays to quieten down and let Faith, Hope, Joy and Love make their way through the Advent candle-lighting. During this time, the soul is briefly relaxed and direction is given to us.

Let the message of Christmas live in our actions and behaviors throughout the year. This is not easy to protect, but recreation, quality leisure time, can be of great support in preserving and developing this. Whether it be quiet moments, the beauty of nature spotted in a rush, family holidays or forgiveness, these events can all contribute to the endless power of joy, peace and love.

Let recreation be a conscious tool for us to keep the message of Christmas celebrations alive, to recharge ourselves in difficult times, to find and maintain inner peace in our daily rush. May the power of love inspire us in the New Year!
