On the first day of Christmas...make travel arrangements:
On the second day of Christmas...have the gifts delivered:
Make sure you know how gifts will get to and from your holiday destination. I suggest ordering as many gifts online and have them shipped so you do not have to worry about packing them up and checking them on the plane, or fitting them in your car.
On the third day of Christmas...stop your mail:
Have the post office hold your mail while you are gone. You do not want packages and mail piling up and increasing the chances something will get lost or stolen. Make sure you also put a hold on your newspaper subscriptions (if you are really lucky and have a trustworthy neighbor, have them check your mail and collect newspapers).
On the fourth day of Christmas...take care of your pets:
Book a kennel or pet-sitter early. They tend to be busy and fill up this time of year.
On the fifth day of Christmas...ensure your home is secured:
On the sixth day of Christmas...winter proof your home:
On the seventh day of Christmas...conserve energy (and save money!):
On the eighth day of Christmas...don't forget about your plants:
One the ninth Day of Christmas...make sure all of your bills are paid:
On the tenth day of Christmas...empty the trash:
On the 11th Day of Christmas...lock and bolt:
On the twelfth day of Christmas...remember what this season is all about:
Do not get bogged down with the stresses of traveling. Remember that this time of year is about giving and recognizing all of the things you have to be joyful for. Cherish this time with your loved ones and family! Safe travels and very happy holidays!
