Do You Have To Go Home For The Holidays?

November 21st, 2017

This week officially kicks off the holiday season, and here at the office, our conversation has inevitably turned to everyone’s plans for celebrating. Some of us are headed off to large family-filled festivities that revolve around one epic meal, while others are taking the time off work to relax and get ready for the new year. While trying to figure out my own plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I got to wondering: Do you have to go home for the holidays? In order to gain some perspective, I called on a few friends to share how they spend the holidays every year and was surprised to learn how widespread the opinions are on the matter. Their insights inspired me to take a new approach to my own holiday planning this year, and I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.

    I personally love spending time with our families at both of our holidays, however our Thanksgiving here in Canada is in October so it gives us more leeway between the two holidays so everything isn’t so crunched together.

    Loved this article. Since moving away from family due to job relocation 5 years ago, the holidays have become a struggle and I have lost the joy in them. I find that we are the ones always needing to travel back and my anxiety level rises as the days draw near to leave to go back. I know we can start new traditions here in our new home, but older children have moved out and to other states themselves and I LOVE spending time with family. Finding our new norm will come in time, but change is always hard.
