As every grownup knows, the holiday seasons come way too quickly. One possible reason for this is because these festivities kind of arrive in clumps.
From the moment it's November, it's almost a back-to-back session of one major holiday celebration after another. This fact remains the same, even with those who manage to get their ducks in a row and spend their holiday on vacation.
Arguably one of the most renowned events in the entire world, celebrating Christmas is memorable enough in itself.
However, when celebrating this holiday away from home, we tend to forget to do some important things. This becomes even more crucial where the kids are concerned.
So while away, it helps to have a to-do list of vital things you should do to keep the family Christmas spirit alive.
Have the Kids Write Santa a Letter
When on a vacation, it's relatively easy for the kids to forget to talk to Santa. Being the one to remind them and helping them through the activity can be a really enjoyable activity for Christmas Eve, wherever you are.
The only supplies you'll need for this mission is some fancy paper and sparkly pen.
Be sure to get Santa's address right.
It's Santa, North Pole.
See a Tree Lighting Ceremony
We know that once on a vacation, there are usually a hundred other things you have planned to do. However, seeing a tree lighting ceremony is one truly amazing way of making your Christmas Eve one to remember.
You could go watch it with family and really get into the Christmas spirit.
