Holiday Travel – Win a #HyattHouse 2 Night Stay and More!
The old song tells us there’s no place like home for the holidays, but let’s face it – there’s something really appealing about getting away for the end of the year festivities. Some plan a trip cross country to visit beloved family and friends, while others long for a jaunt to a special destination to check out a favorite attraction decorated for the holiday. Or our travel plans may be weather-inspired, with some heading to the snowy slopes to catch the holiday spirit and others headed somewhere tropical, where any ice they see is in their cocktail.
Once we embrace the idea that home is where the heart is, we can let our heart lead us all over the world for the holidays – and our celebration can be wonderful, no matter where we roam. And as long as we choose wisely, we can find a perfect “home base” for our holiday travels. A cozy hotel room or a chalet with a view can inspire holiday spirit, no matter how far away from home you may be.
Holiday travel – that’s what we’re talking about during the next #TMOM Twitter party, sponsored by #HyattHouse. And our sponsors are offering up their own holiday gift for participants in this week’s party – two nights at any Hyatt House hotel for one lucky winner. We also have three $100 Visa gift cards for three others chosen at random, courtesy of We Are Social. Just enter through the widget below.
This year presents the perfect set-up for holiday travel. Gas prices are at their lowest levels since 2008, and many of us may see gas at under $2.00 a gallon before mid-month. (It’s already there here in South Jersey, where I filled up for less than $30 – $1.72 a gallon – yesterday morning.)
And all the winter holidays – Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanza and New Year’s – line up with weekends. Seriously, when will that happen again? Kwanza begins on Saturday, December 15 and ends Friday, January 1. Chanukah begins Sunday, December 6 and ends Monday, December 14. Christmas (December 25) is a Friday this year, as is New Year’s Day. It sounds like the perfect time to plan a long weekend – for one or all of the holidays!
