Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services planning for holiday season

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. – Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services is switching things up with their celebration of this coming holiday season.

This year, instead of Berlin’s Christmas Parade, people can participate in the Ice Ice Berlin event. It’s a winter art stroll complete with stores open late and free ornaments and hot chocolate. Plus, WYFCS says that they’re working on organizing family game night packages instead of their annual holiday dinner.

Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Leggour says that they wanted to find a way to get into the holiday spirit and boost morale in these difficult times. “It’s really important to continue doing these things in any way possible because it helps us cope. It’s something to look forward to and it’s something positive to think about. Even if it has to be adapted, that’s okay. We still need rituals,” said Dr. Leggour.

WCYFS will also be putting together a parenting survival toolkit packed with fun family activity ideas and self care items. In February they’ll be offering a local family a stay-cation winter getaway to the Comfort Inn in Ocean City. The package includes a three day and two night stay.
