Moving Over the Holidays

Moving and holidays both can be exciting and stressful events. They really were not made to do together, however, sometimes we have to move over the holidays. The advantage to moving over the holidays is we usually have time off from work and school to do the packing, loading and moving. The disadvantage is we can lose the “celebrating” part of the holiday in the process. Here are some tips to help you celebrate the holidays in the midst of moving —

**************************************************************************************************

Plan A Celebrate the holiday at your house. How can you celebrate a holiday at your home when you are moving? Well, if you are planning a Do-It-Yourself move, then it can be a big challenge. However, if your tradition requires that you host the party, then designate one area of your house for the party (i.e., basement room, main room or upstairs area). Contain all the packing activity to another area that will not interfere with the festivities. (Definitely, accept those who offer to help you clean up afterwards.)

Plan B – Celebrate the holiday at a family member or friend’s house.  This is probably the best option, because you can avoid the burden of hosting the party, but have the benefit of all the fun with family and friends. It is also a great way for a family member or friend to give you a “moving” gift, especially if they are otherwise physically unable to help you move.

Plan CCelebrate the holiday at a hotel. Granted, this might be an undesirable option, but it is better than not celebrating the holiday at all. Plus, a hotel has extra accommodations you may not have at your house — heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, room service, etc…
