My Story about Why I love this Holiday Season Planner
First, let me tell you why I created this planner. We hosted several parties throughout the holiday season since my husband and I married over 25 years ago. It has become our thing in both our families. At one point, we had five parties during this time of the year, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, My family holiday gathering, my husband's holiday gathering, and New Year's Eve. These events happened for more than five years. This wasn't just meals we would serve. We created fun games and crafts activities for the kids and adults. We all made theme meals for the individual parties and organize the family members to bring side dishes/desserts for each party. If I didn't have this planner, we wouldn't have been able to organize the parties inexpensively, and we wouldn't have been able to enjoy them. It was a necessity to keep spending down and time managed.
