What Do You Do Instead Of Going Home For The Holidays?

Because not every tradition involves family.

Posted on

This time of year, it's impossible to escape ideas of what the ~right~ holiday season looks like.

You know... Going home, spending time with your family, the whole bit.

But let's be real, that's not what the holidays mean for everyone.

Maybe it's not so easy — financially, emotionally, or otherwise — to be with family members this month. Or maybe you've just grown into new traditions that feel wonderful and not stressful at all.

Maybe it's not so easy — financially, emotionally, or otherwise — to be with family members this month. Or maybe you've just grown into new traditions that feel wonderful and not stressful at all.

So we want to know: If the holidays don't involve "going home" for you, how do you spend them instead?

Are you the master of the weird alternative holiday party?

Do you and your best friend binge watch every holiday episode of your favorite shows?

Did you come up with a delightfully random tradition with a partner?

Or do you take the time off as an opportunity to treat yourself?
