Are you heading out this year or staying home for the holidays? How many hugs are you looking forward to? If you’re like us, you’ll count enough warm and wonderful greetings to outweigh weird, annoying and crazy Christmas encounters.
Some years, they all come caroling through our front door. Other holidays, we join them at a relative’s table. Every one of us could write a book about the strange, wacky and unhinged people who make up our extended families.
Your aunt can’t possibly be more nosy than ours. And those cousins who constantly brag can’t compete with ours who, according to them, are raising the most perfect children on the planet. From snarky sisters to brothers who act like Beavis and Butt-Head, you put up with them all. So do we.
Where in the world can you hide? Again, if you’re like us, you don’t because you don’t really want to.
Crazy relatives are as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and jingle bells. For every lump of coal in the crowd, there’s a snow angel. For every grinch, there’s a Secret Santa. At the end of the day, your stocking is stuffed with a dazzling variety of people who put a unique sparkle in the season.
We love them all, but it helps that we only see some of them once a year.
When we really need to get away, we just come home to HolidayDispatch. The door’s always open, the noise level never bothers, and there’s a reason to smile around every corner. Come on in, and find out for yourself.
Welcome to your other home for the holidays.
