Vacations are always a great way to spend time with your family and bond with them in ways that you probably won’t do when going about your daily life cooped up in the same house. And when it is Christmas and vacation together, it becomes an amazing and magical way to spend time with your family. As much as it sounds great to have a vacation during Christmas you must also understand that Christmas is probably the most difficult time to go on vacations. Flights are going to be full, the hotels are all going to be booked and you should also gear yourself for all the crowd that you will be encountering everywhere. There are also the increased fares for everything from the flight, food and the hotel rooms that you have to consider before you plan a Christmas vacation. Here are some family Christmas vacation ideas.

1. Drive someplace close if you do not have flight tickets

If you had not planned your vacation earlier and do not want to shell out the exorbitant prices that the airlines demand during Christmas, then come up with an alternate location where you can drive to with less fuss and pressure. Sometimes, the journey becomes more important and entertaining than the destination and you will sure get a lot of time with the family while driving than when you are inside a flight.

2. Visit family that you do not see much

A great Christmas vacation would be something that you spend with the extended family or just visiting family that you haven’t seen for ages. You can either go to them or you can invite them over to your place and make it a vacation for everyone.

3. Pick a place where it snows

Somehow we have grown up seeing images of Christmas with snow filled trees, sledges, reindeer and lots and lots of snow. So plan a vacation where you can see lot of snow and where the children can play around in the snow and make snowmen and snow angels.

4. Invite friends to your vacation and the friends of your kids too

Christmas vacations is not only about having fun and bonding with your family, but it about the spirit of sharing. So if you have a single friend or if your kids have friends whose family is not going on a vacation, invite them along with you. More is always merrier. You Christmas vacation will also stay true to the Christmas spirit of sharing your love with others.

5. If you are planning something elaborate, then plan ahead and plan early

Christmas vacations are mostly stressful with the staggering logistics involved. So the best idea to have a fun filled vacation is to plan well ahead and plan early. Also save for Christmas vacation throughout the year, so you will want for nothing during the vacation.

Make each of your Christmas vacation different. Or if you are someone who finds comfort in uniformity, then make it like a ritual where you go to the same place every year and do some things that are unique to your family alone. And remember to stay calm and happy and share your joy with others.
