Happy Holidays!

Just a quick note today (and for the next few days) as the TV is set to A Christmas Carol (the Reginald Owen 1938 version), Deal Girl is making a poster for Santa, and Vacation has officially commenced.

Yes, our tree is full of presents, but my favorite memory of 2014’s Holiday season may be from this past weekend, spent as a family in Baltimore. Not doing anything too outlandish: visiting the Christmas Market, gazing at the 34th Street lights, using our membership to visit the Maryland Science Center. But it’s the moments in-between: s’mores pancakes and yes, pillow forts that make the memories.

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is usually dead at most city hotels and rates drop to levels rarely seen. What about taking a day or 2 and getting out of town? Use the stay to finish up credit for status. No status? Here’s a $25 invite credit to Orbitz that might help.

You don’t have to go far…just far enough to leave reality behind and embrace the season with your kids.

Headed anywhere fun? Please share!
