You Are a Holiday Sage!
The Sage is quite likely to enjoy the cultural aspects of the season. Handel’s Messiah, The Nutcracker, or a production of the Christmas Carol is right up the Sage’s alley. In retirement the Sage may actually be a member of a choral group or orchestra and perform holiday music. Gifts given by the Sage may be educational- books, gifts from travel destinations, or even a subscription to National Geographic. The Sage may not like all the fuss and muss of the holidays, preferring simpler more minimalistic decorations. The Sage might be willing to forego decorations all together and use the holiday break as a time for travel to an interesting destination. Even in retirement, the Sage is unlikely to just sit around during the holidays preferring instead to look for intellectually challenging things to do. While not terribly social, the Sage will still enjoy discussing world events with interesting family members or teaching grandchildren how to use newly acquired gadgets and toys.
