Traditional Christmas

I would say that I am a traditional kind of girl but if you were to ask my husband he would tell you that I know nothing about tradition. We go back and forth regarding where we will spend Christmas. I want to travel, yet he wants to gather together with family. He thinks that my ideas are unorthodox where as I believe that the holiday is wherever you are. I have presented many holiday trip ideas to him in the past but I have yet to convince him of the benefits of spending the holiday at a resort.

Holidays can be a stressful time. Their is lots of grocery shopping, cooking, organizing, clean-up and socializing. I can accept the organizing and socializing it's just the others that wear me out.

This year my ideas were shot down yet again but I'd like to take a moment to share my dream holiday with you all. At least here my desires won't fall on deaf ears.

The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing would be a great destination for the Christmas holiday. They have a Magic of Christmas Package that includes tickets to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Christmas Show, discount coupon book for shopping on Branson Landing, and breakfast the following morning at Liberty Tavern. I am more into relaxing during the holiday, so the spa available at the hotel would be my first destination. A few hours in the hot tub and then dinner at a local restaurant.

And for a backup just in case the Promanade is booked there is the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. Their suites include either king or double queen ''Serenity Beds'' with the Serta Suite Dreams Mattress. If you do not have a Serta mattress this would be the perfect time to try one out. The rooms include spacious sitting areas with sleeper sofas, a dining area, a kitchen with a refrigerator, a range, a wet bar, flat panel televisions, a large well lit work desk with high-speed internet access so I can keep my blog up to date.


Who would turn down a well planned vacation like this besides my husband?

  1. Let's hope next year you get your wish. But I'm sure without the vacation you still have a wonderful Xmas with your loved ones at home. Merry Xmas Hadias.
