Ever since starting Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University I’ve been thinking about the future. I’ve started to dream again and plan for things that I want to do. So, you might be confused as to why I am talking about Christmas in February. Granted we have yet to put Eva’s Christmas tree away, but in all seriousness planning for Christmas is a big deal. If you can plan to put aside enough money each month you can have yourself a very decent Christmas and it won’t follow you into February (well except for the decorations).
If your Christmas plans include vacation it is not too early to get started planning. I was looking at the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing because they had some great deals on Christmas packages last year and will likely have them again this year. I’ve been to Missouri and I really liked it out there. I regret that I never drove over to Branson because I think it would have been a great place to see some shows and take some photos.
Allison and I just got back from Las Vegas and we were not impressed with the place as a potential family vacation area. I wanted to do a photo montage titled Las Vegas is for families and show all the awful stuff we saw. So if we were to go to a place that was actually for families I think that Branson would be it.
Some of the Christmas packages that appealed to me were the “It’s a Wonderful Life” package which started at $329 which included discounts on shopping, restaurants and a trip to Aspire Medical Spa. But for the family I think that the “Santa’s Coming to Town” Package would be much better. This package has a story time with Mrs. Clause in the lobby of the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. The most fun part of this (at least for us watching Eva enjoy Christmas) would be the part where Santa himself will deliver presents cookies and milk to our room. That started at $189 per night. Another very cool package is the “Polar Express” Package. This package includes deluxe accommodations for a family of four starting at $289 and includes a first-class excursion on the Polar Express with dining car seating, hot cocoa and cookies along with a souvenir ceramic mug.
Branson is also home to many shows. There is one show that sounds very cool to me and that is the New Shanghai Circus – Acrobats of China. Watching people who can do some amazing feats is very entertaining to me and I know that Allison liked the shows we saw in Vegas so I think this one would be great. The other thing would be seeing some comedy shows, we love comedy.
I’ll be saving our pennies and maybe we’ll have a winter trip to Branson, maybe somewhere else but either way we’ll be paying for Christmas in cash this year.
