Day of celebration helps shake off winter blues
Since winter doesn’t seem to want to go away, the folks at Frost Manor decided to bring some sunshine to the Lindsay long-term care home Feb. 22 by celebrating the margarita, the ultimate beverage of warm-weather fun.
And why not? After all, this was National Margarita Day, so team members thought a celebration of the drink, which is made from tequila, orange liqueur and fruit juice, was in order.
“Who needs a reason to celebrate? We pretended we were in Hawaii, drinking margaritas to help shake the winter blues at Frost Manor,” life enrichment co-ordinator (LEC) Lyndsay Burton tells The OMNIway.
Residents and team members donned leis and sipped strawberry margaritas with little paper umbrellas made by life enrichment team members Kim Williams and Amy Whitehead, and volunteer Christine Flato. All the while the music from the “Margaritaville playlist” was playing in the background, the LEC adds.
“This is just one of the wacky events we throw throughout the year to celebrate the simple things that make life sweet,” Lyndsay says.
The Frost Manor celebration fits in perfectly with what the creators of National Margarita Day had in mind.
“National Margarita Day was started to celebrate the margarita, plain and simple,” the National Margarita Day website states. “Friendship, good times and memories of somewhere warmer are all great reasons to enjoy a margarita.”
