The holidays have arrived, and it’s the perfect time to connect with family and friends to share in the spirit of the season. From holiday meals to parties and parades, this season can also be incredibly busy, making it difficult to bring loved ones together and truly share in the moments that matter. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to help you navigate the holiday and connect with those you cherish most during this magical time of the year.

Invite the family over for a holiday movie marathon 

Sometimes the best way to celebrate the season is the simplest! Take a break from the holiday chaos and enjoy movie nostalgia. Invite friends and family over for a holiday movie marathon. Select movies of different decades or genres to appease all ages. Pop some popcorn for snacking and heat up the hot cocoa while you enjoy movies that warm your heart.

Host a cookie decorating party

The holiday season is a magical time for everyone, no matter our age. The presents, the parties, the cookies! Plus, we all know that grandparents make the best cookies, so why not invite the grandkids over to help you bake and decorate some delicious goodies. The gathering is sure to be full of love, laughter and lots of sprinkles.

Open presents over video chat

Don’t let distance put a damper on your holiday season. Although your family may not all be in one place, family traditions – such as opening presents together – do not have to change! When it comes time to open those special gifts, use your smartphone to video chat so you do not have to miss the moments that matter most. It doesn’t have to come with a high price tag, either – try TracFone. They offer a no-nonsense 30-day smartphone-only plan with talk, text and data for just $15 a month – all on the largest 4G LTE networks, so you’ll have plenty of savings left over to spoil the grandkids. There are no activation or cancellation fees, so you can change your no-contract plan as often as needed, without penalties. Learn more at https://get.tracfone.com.

Create a gift workshop at home

For grandkids, sometimes buying presents for mom and dad can be tricky. Make it easy on them this year and bring the holidays right to the kitchen table. Research arts & crafts ideas, such as a holiday bookmark or jewelry box, and get all the supplies ready. When the kiddos come over, help them put together presents that mom and dad will love. After they’ve completed their crafts, make some hot cocoa and put on some holiday songs while you wait for the glue and paint to dry.

Host a potluck

Managing the big holiday meal can become a stressor of the season, but this year turn to family for help and host a potluck. Encourage your loved ones to bring their favorite dishes, holiday-themed or not, and feast on a meal unique to your family. Not only will this reduce the fuss and time you would have put toward the meal, but it also will be a relief to your wallet! During dinner, share favorite moments of the past year and what you are looking forward to most in the next.


My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com did for me.
Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
Remain blessed.
