It might still feel hot outside to you, but the mornings and evenings are becoming cooler and I can just smell fall weather sitting right around the corner. With cooler weather quickly approaching, this also means that the holidays are quickly approaching and to be completely honest with you, it is my favorite season for one reason: family time.
Family time is truly a gift and if you have the ability to gather your entire family together and make memories during the holiday season, you need to count your blessings because a lot of people do not get that opportunity and would do anything to have it.
When you do get to spend time with your family, enjoy the gift of time that you have and put your phone down, work to create those memories, and enjoy the little things. Here are a few tips and tricks to make the most of the time that you will get with your family:
Shop In Advance
Since the title of this blog post has the word “gift” in it, I want to address that subject a bit. When you are shopping for actual gifts for the holidays, do it ahead of time so that you are not scrambling at the last minute. This allows you to really focus on the gift of spending time with your family once the holidays roll around and not on the copious amounts of people that are standing in line with you at Sephora or TJMaxx.
Find Extra Ways To Acquire Funds
This is the same idea as shopping in advance. You do not want to be stuck working many hours when you could be spending that time with your family, so instead, find extra ways to acquire funds so that you can give gifts and do fun family activities that might cost a bit of extra money. Luckily, local Atlanta-based company, Prestamos Por Oro can help you with that. Prestamos Por Oro is based in Buckhead and provides low-interest collateral loans. These loans are short-term (typically) and they allow you to get your cash on the same day – you only need your item and your credentials (from any country). Their experienced team is there to help you get the most money for your items, so you do not have to worry. Prestamos Por Oro says that pawn loans are very useful to people who have a need to solve a financial problem. Check out their frequently asked questions page if you would like more information!
As families evolve and change, the traditions that they have created as family from childhood once again become necessities, like they were when you were a child, as they assume new meaning in the context of our need to communicate and understand our loved ones. The holidays give us a fantastic reminder that we need to connect and spend time with our families.
Because of this, I believe it’s very important to pass the torch on to the next generation and teach our children and our children’s children about family traditions because as kids, it will be important to them, and the same goes for when they become adults. Passing on tradition imparts a sense of continuity, bonding, and most importantly, love. Family traditions can help instill social values and can contribute to creating close family ties, which is very important, but it is up to every single one of us to keep the traditions going. If they have been lost over the years, create your own, or start the old ones back up again! It is never too late.
Create A Calendar
If you are doing it right, you probably have a whole calendar worth of things to do and people to see. Create a physical calendar, you can even print one from this site and our Resource Library so that you can stay organized and do not have to stress about when things are.
Last but not least, remember to have fun! Spending time with your family is truly a gift, like I mentioned above, and it all boils down to having a good time and making memories. Do the things you love to do no matter if that is sitting in your pj’s and watching movies, or going out and looking at all of the beautiful lights and make sure to soak in all of the moments with your family!
