Holiday Celebration Traditions At Fairview Rehab

Celebrating holidays is one of the joys of life, and it should happen no matter your current circumstances. Holiday celebration is a great mood-booster for everyone involved and helps lift the spirits.

Our patients come from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, and we honour this diversity by celebrating various international holidays. Holiday celebration is an important part of recreation therapy, and gets people talking and reminiscing. This fall we celebrate several big holidays, including Rosh Hashanah and Halloween.

At Fairview we see holidays as supplementing recreation therapy. We celebrate them by hosting parties and shows, and we regularly invite musicians to play live music. All our staff and patients join in to brighten up the festivities and create a positive atmosphere. Holiday celebration is an unrivalled tonic for our patients’ mental health and sense of wellbeing.

Holiday Celebration Boosts Mood

Whether it’s the decorations or a culinary treat, there is something for everyone when we mark a special occasion.

We often invite actors and musicians to put on performances for our patients, and they always prove extremely popular. Excitement fills the air during a holiday, and patients just love getting into the swing of things! These positive vibes lift the spirits and are great for mental health.

A change from everyday routines stimulates the brain and encourages us to engage with our surroundings. A holiday celebration, with lovely decorations, interesting food, and traditional music stimulates the senses. Participating in group activities and having fun works wonders for your outlook on life.

Holiday Celebration Makes Patients Feel At Home

Marking a holiday with a fun-filled celebration is a great way to socialize and feel part of a big family. Having a giggle with a friend as you listen to live music or eat holiday snacks is a joy.

There is nothing like a holiday to bring people together and make you feel part of something bigger than yourself. You can reminisce, discuss traditions, learn new things about different cultures, or simply sit back and enjoy the convivial atmosphere.

During a holiday celebration, you feel the warmth between staff and patients. Celebrating together gives people a strong sense of community in a loving and relaxed setting.


It’s nice to have something to look forward to, and plan for, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. Marking a big religious or other holiday brings people together and spreads love and happiness. Taking part is a great way to relieve anxiety and depression.
