Merry Christmas to All

The American Seniors Association Delivers You a Gift of Warm Wishes this Christmas Season!

Greetings!

Christmas is right around the corner and you are most likely busy buying all your last minute gifts, planning holiday events with family and friends, and baking all of those tasty Christmas treats! The team here at American Seniors understands how busy this time of year is for everyone and how easy it is to get lost in the craziness of the holidays, but we also know how important it is to take a minute to step away from the hustle and bustle of the malls and crowds, and simply relax. For this very reason, my team has put together a list of Christmas activities, puzzles, stories, etc. for your entertainment. We think these fun activities and heartfelt stories are perfect for the holidays, and a reminder to us all to unwind for even just a moment. If you are not one to partake in Christmas activities, we hope that you take a minute to give thanks for all that you have this year.

American Seniors is thankful for so many things this year, but most of all, we are thankful for our supportive members. It is only because of dedicated, conservative members like you that American Seniors has grown substantially this year, so we send you all of our thanks! From my fellow team members and me, we wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

All the best to you and your family,

Phil Kent
Chief Executive Officer
American Seniors Association

Did you know that…
  • The song "White Christmas" is the top-selling Christmas single of all time.
  • "Silent Night" is the world’s most commonly known Christmas Carol. It was originally a poem written in 1816 by Austrian Priest Joseph Mohr.
  • Mistletoe was used by Druid priests 200 years before the birth of Christ in their winter celebrations. They revered the plant since it had no roots yet remained green during the cold months of winter.
  • Also, the Scandinavians associated mistletoe with Frigga, the goddess of love, which may have begun the tradition of kissing underneath the mistletoe. Kissing underneath the mistletoe gave those who kissed the promise of happiness and good luck in the following year.
  • An average Christmas tree takes 15 years to grow.
  • The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.
