Finally, you can breathe a sigh of relief as the hustle and bustle of the holiday season come to an end. With so much going on during the holidays, it’s no wonder that so many people get sick. Although visiting with family is exciting, it can also be stressful as people discuss hot-button topics like politics. The month of January is the perfect time to take a breather and relax. Here are a few of the reasons we love January so much at DiSanto Propane.
Unless you travel for business, you have no reason to leave your home. This means no crowded airports or mechanical delays. You won’t be packed into a plane full of sniffling, coughing passengers and crying babies. You also won’t have to spend hours driving in the snow to visit your aunt who lives in the middle of nowhere. Finally, you can enjoy home sweet home.
The holidays are over, which means you don’t have to spend hours at the local big box store scrambling to find presents for various friends and family members. Let’s face it; the holiday season hits your wallet hard, so you can finally stop the endless spending after you’ve bought everyone gifts.
You also don’t have to waste hours browsing the internet searching for the perfect gift for a loved one and then praying that it arrives in time for Christmas. This also means that you won’t fret over the ominous notes the UPS man leaves on your door when you miss a delivery by minutes.
No Cooking For Large Groups
Are you in charge of cooking the big dinner for your family? No matter how many family members help, cooking for large groups can be unpredictable, messy and downright stressful. In January, people tend to stay in, which means that you won’t have to cook for as many people.
The holidays are often filled with potluck parties, which should make things easier, right? Well, it depends on what you are tasked with cooking. If you have the task of cooking a green bean casserole, it should be relatively easy. However, if you decided to cook a complicated pie recipe, you could stress out the night before the vent, desperately trying to perfect a difficult recipe. Luckily, in January, you will probably not have any potlucks to sweat over so you can take a breather for the time being.
The Days Are Getting Longer (Slowly)
One of the most depressing aspects of the holidays lies in the shortness of the days. The days grow dark so early! By January, the shortest day of the year is already behind us, which means that you have longer days to look forward to. Sure, the days are still short, but they only get better from here.
More Time To Read
By January first, all the holiday and New Year’s Eve parties are over, which means you have more time to curl up in front of your propane fireplace to read your favorite book. If you’re looking for something new to read, you could head over to your local library for a good book without having to spend a penny. Reading is good for the heart, soul and mind, so what are you waiting for?
Binge on Your Favorite Shows
If you’re looking for another reason to curl up in front of your fireplace, why not catch up on your favorite shows? If you love all things eighties and enjoy a good scare, consider watching Stranger Things. Are you behind in the last season of Game of Thrones? You now have plenty of time to catch up and find out who dies in this round.
Watch Your Favorite Movies
It finally seems as if you have more free time than ever, which makes January the perfect time to sit down and watch a good movie. Whether you want to catch up on your old favorites or watch something new, a plethora of films is available online for your viewing pleasure. The best thing is that you don’t have to pay any irritating late fees when you rent movies online.
