On community meals for the holidays
together with local community for Christmas might
be better than traveling
to be with traditional families that are
spread out all over the world.
Think about spending the holidays in places like the
Denver Airport Terminal, not on purpose, but the "S" word
One can define the "S" word several ways. Snow is
one word starting with S. "White Christmas" may be the most
popular Christmas song, but it's writers didn't have the Denver Airport
in mind. Nor did they have I-5 on the Sunday just after
Thanksgiving where I hear that it took 5 hours for some folks to get
from Burlington to Bellingham.
In many cases, traditional family gatherings are good,
but it is nice to know there are alternatives. Alternative
options like, you don't have to stay with family members. I am sure
there are cheap hotels where ever
you are traveling to. Stay at a hotel and be pampered! You could use
the stress free environment,
especially if your holiday excursions are lasting a few days and few
Also the Internet makes it easier to stay in touch with
friends and relatives.
Happy Holidays 2006 and try not to sweat it.
Christmas can be a rat race, but it can also be a good time of
year. It doesn't have to be the same tradition for
everyone. You can innovate to make it enjoyable.
