For many families the holidays are a special time to be together. That’s why it can be so hard to go on vacation on those days. But getting the national holidays off from work can extend your vacation time dramatically. Here are some cheeky methods you can use to lighten the blow on the family.

The bribe
Have you ever had authentic Belgian chocolate? Soon you will.

The opportunity
We found some amazing plane tickets we just couldn’t pass up.

The frugal
Lets push our celebration until January, then gifts will be less expensive.

The straight forward
We are going to Europe over the holidays.

The smooth operator
We are going to Germany to get your Christmas gifts this year. They will be hand delivered.

The jokester
Knock knock. Who’s there? Europe. Europe who? No, you’re a poo! Actually we are going to Europe for the holidays. (I never said it was a good joke!)

 The once-in-a-life time
We may never get a chance like this again, so we are headed to Europe this winter. (but I hope you do get go more than once!)

The positive attitude
Guess what I’m doing over the holidays!?! Going to Europe and I’m soooo excited.

The trade-off
If i”m not here for the holidays, you don’t technically need to buy me a present.

Just go
The reality is that your family is going be excited that you get the chance to see and experience something new. You really don’t need to use any of these little tricks on them, you just need to let your internal excitment shine through. But if you are having a little trouble convincing yourself that the off-season is right for you, we’ve got you covered.
