Festive Sounds To Be Thankful For

by | Dec 7, 2018 | Patient Resources | 0 comments

It’s that joyful time of year again, the holiday season is here. With families coming together, gifts being exchanged, it’s a time for giving thanks. What are you thankful for? It’s a question in lots of people’s minds at this time of year. At Acadian Hearing, we’re thankful for the technology that has transformed so many of our patients’ lives. With the most up to date hearing technology, we’ve seen our patients receive the gift of hearing, allowing them to enjoy all those beautiful sounds that the festive season has to offer.

So let’s focus on all the wonderful sounds of the holiday’s that our hearing aids will bring to our patients.


The sound of Santa’s voice as he gives gifts at the grotto, greeted by the excited giggles of the children flocking to meet him.



The glorious sound of carollers at the door, singing a classic that brings back happy festive memories from years gone by.


The giving of thanks

With the giving and receiving of gifts, comes heartfelt thanks. Whether it’s thanks for the obligatory knitted sweater you get every year or that big gift you’ve been hinting at all year, it’s a simple gesture that is well worth hearing.


The laughter

When good friends and family get together, laughter ensues. Whether it’s a well-told wisecrack from the comedian in the family or the hilarity of that slightly eccentric relative or friend. It feels good to hear those chuckles.


The arguments

Sometimes, the arguments can be just as fun as the jokes. The same old bickering between the old married couples at the table or the teasing between siblings. Somehow it makes those memories all the more cherished.


Those ‘belly full’ groans

Stuffed to the brim with turkey, the chink of cutlery on empty plates, the belt buckles get loosened, the shoulders slump and the groans of full tummies fill the air.


Those famous lines

Struggling to shift from the couch after the hearty meal, everyone draws comfort from watching that family favorite on TV. You all know the lines by heart, whether it’s the familiar shout of “Kevin” from Home Alone’s Mrs. McAllister, or the excited cry from Buddy, a 190cm elf, it’s a sound that can make a memorable family Christmas.

Make sure you don’t miss out on all the wonderful sounds of the holiday’s this year. Get your hearing in good shape with a hearing evaluation at Acadian Hearing – Louisiana’s hearing care specialists.
