As exciting as year-end can be, it can also be very busy and demanding. With so many meetings to attend, budgets to put together and pertinent decisions to take, one could easily forget it is supposed to be the ‘holiday’ season. It has been an eventful year and you have worked round the clock to achieve the victories you recorded. You deserve to take some time off, spoil yourself a little and have a good time this Christmas.
So, what are your plans for the holidays? Do you have children returning home or are you kicking it solo? Whichever way, you might find the suggestions below useful guide to letting down your hair and enjoying the holidays this year.
Holiday time is family time
What if you take two extra days apart from the regular Christmas and Boxing day public holidays just to be with your family. You could play games, share meals, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Or perhaps pop some corn, grab some drinks, and turn your living room into a cinema. What’s showing? Old movies with your spouse or latest movies with your children, it’s bound to be fun all the way. You could also pick out a personalized gift for every member of your family.
It’s a House party!
This could be so much fun. Reach out to your close friends and family, including the ones your busy schedule didn’t permit you to see all through the year. You could play outdoor games, enjoy barbecue, and finger foods by the pool or even have a karaoke contest right there in your compound. A house party is a good way to connect with all the people dear to you and have a jolly good time. 26th December maybe?
An evening out?
When was the last time you enjoyed an outing that was not work related? This season naturally offers a plethora of fun activities. From music concerts to comedy shows and galas. You could find one that interests you and take an evening out to attend, maybe with your spouse, children, or really close friends. If you are into theatre for instance, Fela & his kalakuta queens will be showing at TerraKulture all through the holidays. And you can also enjoy a beautiful time of golf with your associates at Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate.
Another thing that could be really relaxing is enjoying a weekend getaway at a state of the art hotel, perhaps even in a different city, if you care for a change of environment. Staycations are easy to plan and do not require much of a budget. You could book your suite in advance or upon arrival, especially as your ARM Esteem status entitles you to exclusive discounts at selected Marriot Hotels across the country. Want to leave the hustle and bustle of Lagos to enjoy tranquillity and a burst of Culture at Le’ Meridian Ibom? Sounds good right. To activate your discount privilege, please reach out to your relationship manager.
However, you choose to observe the Christmas holidays, make it a holiday to remember. Our wishes for you are for a beautiful end to 2017 and a fantastic new year ahead.
