Moving with Christmas Around the Corner! Can it be Done?


Recommended Posts

Well, sometimes there is no choice. You have been relocated or someone put an offer on your home and you just have to move even if Christmas time is near. The good news is that regardless of the craziness this season brings, it is possible to move in an organized way and still have time to enjoy your favorite time of year.


Probably, the hardest thing about moving close to Christmas time is that you will have to leave your friends and family behind. This is something you have to accept and do not let it take control of you and your sanity. The truth is that you are not really losing anyone, just moving a little farther away. In order to help you feel more at home, put up your Christmas tree as soon as you move in, it will give you a homey feeling since it is something you brought from your previous place. Also, as soon as you’re settled, or even some weeks before, if possible, try to get to know some neighbors, volunteer at events happening around the holidays or go and knock on some doors to introduce yourself and your family.


So, you are the Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner host every year? It would be good if you could ask someone else to do it this year so that you can pack and enjoy the activity at the same time without the added stress. This could be a great time to say goodbye to many friends and family, and you should be fresh and happy to enjoy it fully.


Do not worry so much about Christmas shopping. The best gift you can give your loved ones is for them to see you happy and accomplished, thus, choose to spend quality time with them instead before you leave. Your time and happiness will be the most valuable gift.


One thing you must do, though, is pay attention to your kids. Every move is a traumatic experience for them and it could be even worse if it happens around Christmas. Take the time to talk to them about their worries, like: will Santa know the new address?


Do not just sit on your b… look for activities to stay entertained during the holidays at your new place and spend valuable time getting your home the way you like it. In this way, after the holidays, you can start inviting new friends to your beautiful home.


You will take a big weight off your shoulders if you hire professional help to handle your move. Make sure you contact a Seattle moving Company capable of handling everything in an organized and safe manner, so that you know your valuables are taken care of in the best way possible.


In the end, it is all about putting things into perspective. There is always a way to do everything in a calm and organized way while enjoying your traditions and loved ones. And the best part is, next year you will have the opportunity to enjoy new traditions, with new and old friends, with your family, and with the feeling of accomplishment that brings moving ahead in your life.
