This year, travel.

Happy New Year!

I hope you made it through the festive season without too many bumps and bruises.

If you’ve just looked down to see claw marks on your arms courtesy of a crazy aunt, and that patch of hair your brother pulled out still hasn’t grown back- I have a solution for you:

This year, travel.

I know the traditional family whatever-you-do is delightful (though, potentially not at all); but do you know what else is fun? Going new places with people you love.

Maybe that means you invite everyone except the crazy, clawing aunt and hair-collecting brother; maybe it’s all the family… maybe it’s none of them.

If you’re worried about breaking the news, I’ve put together two fool-proof options for you. Why not try saying these in front of a mirror for practice?

“Oh, I’m sorry- we’re going away for the holidays this year.”

or,

“We’ve decided to go away for the holidays this year! Join us in *insert place here* why don’t you?”

Good job.

Now get excited! You’re going away for the holidays this year!
