Thanksgiving and Christmas are two big holidays, and sometimes we can get confused with responsibilities.
One thing is turkey for Thanksgiving; we have the responsibility of cooking the turkey, and giving thanks for all the blessings we have. It is not generally a time for gift giving.
At Christmas time, we may have turkey again, but it is a time for giving gifts to those we care for. If we see our family often, depending on how far apart we live, if possible, it is important to make plans to be together. Stores are not usually open, so there are fewer excuses not to be together.
Another thing is, we have to try to make time away from work if possible. Also, it is important to figure out transportation, so we can get to wherever our family members are. It is important to take into account the weather, especially this year, with all of the cold and snow that we have seen already. Some forms of transportation do not run on the holidays, so knowing in advance the form of transportation you need to use, would help you get through the holidays.
Until next time…
