As hard as it is to believe, Christmas is right around the corner, and it’s time to start making plans. And while you probably picture Christmas as a cozy time around the fire while snow gently falls outside on the pine trees, this year, our team at St. John Car Rental encourages you to think outside the box. Instead of spending Christmas at home this year, why not spend it somewhere unexpected- like the Virgin Islands?
1. Avoid the Winter Blues
When you think of the holidays, you probably think about the time spent together as a family, eating great good and enjoying good conversation. However, a lot of work has to be done in order to achieve that, and for most people, the holidays mean a lot of unwanted stress. On top of all that stress, most states also experience darker days and colder weather, and it’s enough to make anyone want to escape. Instead of spending Christmas stressed out and cold, come to the beach and take in some much-needed vitamin D.
2. Give the Gift of Memories
If you have young kids, you probably don’t relish the thought of buying them even more toys. Look around your house. Is there anything they really actually need this Christmas? Or will you just be adding to the clutter? Instead of wrapping up more toys they will get sick of in a month, why not give the gift of a great family vacation? Your kids are much more likely to remember an awesome family vacation with beach adventures than a toy they picked out of a magazine. Maybe you can even make Christmas at the beach a new family tradition.
3. Sand > Snow
Finally, if Christmas at the beach is sounding great, but you’re worried about missing out on the classes snow activities at home, we’ve got you covered. Instead of making a snowman, hold a competition for who can make the best sandman! You can even add a tropical touch by making your sandman wear coconut shells on the chest and coconut tree leaves around the waist to make it look like a Hawaiian dancer.
