To help you keep the Holiday Spirit alive while you are performing your upcoming move, we at Good Time Moving & Storage would like to share some ideas today. It’s hard to acquire those things on the road to the new destination with the holiday season signifying warmth, peaceful, family and friend time with food, gifts and home. The Christmas spirit can feel void if the home is filled with packed boxed, empty cupboards, and no Christmas decorations. You have little choice in the event your employer says you are moving across the states in the middle of December. While getting ready for the move, below is what you can do hold onto the Christmas spirit.
How Do You Keep the Spirit of Christmas Alive?
1) Decorations. On the final day of moving, put up small decorations that can be packed up in the car with you. Avoid complication and keep it humble yet satisfying instead of pulling out every decoration you own and the elaborate Christmas tree. Just before moving day and keep the decorations minimal, hang a small wreath, buy a small disposable tree that you can toss. When it’s time to hit the road, place a few decorations throughout the home to keep the spirit alive but condensed enough that they can fit in a box and be packed up with.
2) Take advantage of takeout food. Especially when family and friends gather, home cooked meals are always ideal. Treat yourself to dining out for the holidays and enjoy being pampered on for the holidays when you got a big move ahead of you and you keep little in the kitchen.
3) Maintain contact. Be sure to let them know the best way to contact you, Christmas time is one for family and friends. Let them know how the moving process is going and how to reach you to keep the connection, no matter if you are at the old address, on the road, or at the new place.
4) Travel with Christmas celebrations. Take the time to find a hotel/motel that are planning an elaborate holiday event or meal if Christmas Day is spent traveling to the new home. As opposed to the dull and mundane sterile lobby of the motel that is planning nothing special, a warmly festively decorated hotel lobby can still invite the holiday spirit with.
5) Explore. The feeling can make one feel lonesome if you are spending Christmas in an unfamiliar territory. This can be turned into a new adventure as you explore the scenery find the local Christmas events and religious opportunities to celebrate.
6) Create new traditions. To start new traditions, this is the best time. To make the move more fun and exciting for them, get the kids involved charge them coming with a new activity to incorporate with the Christmas traditions.
