Sometimes you just have a celebrate a silly little holiday to add some fun to the week. The week between Christmas and New Year’s can often be a really quiet time as many businesses are closed and many places that your loved one likes to visit may are not open during the holiday week. So, take a few hours on December 28th (or take the whole day!) to have a fun celebration of chocolate candy. Count it as a last big hurrah before those New Year’s resolutions kick in. Senior home care providers can assist with the shopping and preparation.
National Chocolate Candy Day was created as an opportunity for everyone to polish off the last of the specialty candies they received as gifts. It’s that time to be brave and try that piece of filled chocolate that you have no idea what will be inside. Will it be delicious coconut or some weird fruity flavor?
But you can take this holiday one step further with your loved one. Here are some fun ways to celebrate National Chocolate Candy Day.
Make some candies with a senior home care aideSenior Home Care Dover MA – Celebrate National Chocolate Candy Day Together
Have your loved one bring out those old recipe books that walk you through the process of making candy at home. Of course, it’ll be wise to first check those ingredients and make sure to add them to the grocery list so when your loved one goes to the market with her senior care provider, they can make sure to pick up all of the ingredients you might need. They might also have to look into buying some needed kitchen utensils like a candy thermometer or specialty molds. It can be fun just looking through the shops to see all the options that are out there.
Then on Dec. 28, your loved one can give it her best shot to create some delicious chocolate candy. This is one activity that even the failures are delicious!
Buy some international candies
A much easier route to go might be spending the day trying some unique chocolate candies from other parts of the world. Your loved one can purchase some to be delivered and enjoyed, or a shopping excursion to some type of world market might also be a fun way to find some unique candies. What can be more fun than looking through oodles of chocolate options, trying to decide which ones to purchase and bring home? If your loved one needs a ride to the world market, your senior care provider might be able to provide the transportation.
Watch videos on how to make candy
There are some very entertaining Youtube videos out there that show the process of creating chocolate candy. Some channels may have chocolate shows as well. So grab a chocolate candy, have a seat, and watch how the magic happens.
Share some candy!
Finally, another great way to celebrate National Chocolate Candy Day is to share some candy. No, we don’t mean pick out those nasty lemon-filled chocolates from your box and give them away. How about instead you have your loved one find a nice small box of chocolate candy to share with a neighbor or her senior care provider? It’s just a fun way to celebrate a little-known, but a delicious holiday.
