‘Tis the season! With family and friends arriving, holiday celebrations happening, and large volumes of Christmas cookies baking, the holidays can certainly make for hectic homes.

And, with 15 days until Christmas and 22 days until New Year’s, there is very little time to prepare your home in a manner that ensures your guests feel welcomed and remain comfortable during their entire stay.

This holiday season, our wish for you is that you’ll find the following holiday comfort tips helpful, so that you and your guests can enjoy the holidays without too much added stress.

Tried and True Holiday Comfort Tips

Tip #1: Establish a Cozy Indoor Temperature

With guests coming and going, establishing a cozy indoor temperature may be a bit tricky, but you needn’t worry as it is definitely doable. To keep your home comfortable, without wasting energy, place cozy areas rugs throughout as well as have your heating system serviced by a professional HVAC technician.

Tip #2: Stock the Pantry

Stock your pantry and fridge full of comfort foods for those times when unexpected guests arrive on your doorstep (trust me it’s bound to happen). We recommend having plenty of tortilla chips, salsa, refried beans, pasta, sauce, cheese, sour cream, eggs and mac and cheese on hand for a quick dinner. As much as it is obvious that we should all be following the sensible guidelines from the Health Tree or from a personal nutritionist, we all know that the holidays are meant for a little indulgence at the dinner table.

Tip #3: Spread the Joy

I know this holiday comfort tip may be a little off topic, but it is important to note that no matter how busy we get during the holidays, we should still remember that there are people out there less fortunate than us as well as those that may be struggling with the “holiday blues.”

Spreading the joy of the season with others just by saying “Happy Holidays” has a way of making even the gloomiest of days brighter for both you and the receiver of said greeting. If possible, you can also contribute to a family in need, by contacting your local Salvation Army.

Happy Holidays!
