Reschedule the Holidays this Year!
Subject: Let’s all move Thanksgiving and Christmas this year FOREVER
Okay, the articles are starting to appear about holiday travel. It is going to be ugly. I know, I’ve also been in the travel business since the early 90s. Less capacity, higher fuel costs and their sur-charge for everything means that flying during these upcoming holidays will be about 30% more than last year, according to some reports.
Well, here we go again. Let’s have winefestnews help you recreate these holidays. If you did not know this, FACT, the slowest airline travel time is about a week after Thanksgiving and a couple of days before Christmas. Yep, your right. Salesfolks finally hunker down and refuse to travel during the “holidays” or potentially lose their wife, kids and homes. Now, understanding this and just like Hallmark, let’s not make up new holidays, but just move them around.
Let’s say it is real important for you to fly to see family or have them come see you. You are going to save a lot of money and be able to buy more wine by having Thanksgiving two weeks before this year’s date of November 27th. So someone has to take a couple of days off. Too bad. Quiet time for enjoying your family and when the official Thanksgiving comes around, you can just set up your home as your cocoon and chill out. Or, go ahead and work the Friday and really p…… everyone off.
Christmas, would be same deal. Move it to sometime between the 5th and 15th of December. You can get away with our newer Christmas being a weekend holiday. Take the Friday and Monday off over one of the first two weekends in December. SAVE big time on flights and hassles. Make a feast for your traditional Christmas meal or just go out. Restaurants will LOVE you. They are also very, very slow this time a year. When the actual holiday comes, pop some bubbly, think about that wonderful time you just had with your family and again chill out.
All of this assumes you go to your loved ones or they come to you. However, saying that, check out the deals during these periods of time. You may just be able to meet up and have a Thanksgiving/Christmas family reunion at a mutual location. Ski territory may start to be pricy, but I bet places like Pelican Cove in Islamorada “FL Keys” Florida would love to have you.(www.pcove.com)
Many of you may already know this, but the Orthodox religion normally celebrates their Christmas a week or two after the Christian Christmas. They always get the after Christmas sales. This sort of evens out their luck with all of us non-orthodox people. R U Syrious……..
