‘Tis the season for gift giving, gingerbread house-making, and family visiting. All of these holiday traditions are cherished and loved, but we all know how quickly family gatherings can turn from sweet to sour. However, the holiday season is a time to be shared with loved ones, so do you book that hotel room you’ve had your eye on — or do you stay in your in laws spare room?

Staying With Family: Pros

  • You save money.
  • You have more time to make holiday memories with family and friends.

Staying With Family: Cons

  • Your bed, couch, or floor isn’t the most comfortable options — no z’s for you!
  • You have to clean up after yourself and others staying in the house.
  • Personalities clash, which may lead to some family bickering.

Staying In A Hotel: Pros

Staying In A Hotel: Cons
