It’s very easy to become so consumed in making sure the holidays go smoothly that you forget to relax and actually have a good time. Ideally, the holidays should be a time to unwind, spend time with loved ones and create new memories at fun events and festivities. Sometimes, the best way to actually enjoy the holidays is to escape from your normal holiday routine and embark on some new adventures.
