Holiday & Special Occasions

Holiday Tips & Advice for Celebrating Special Occasions


Holidays can be warm and fuzzy – or they can be all out stress, tears and war! And it kind of makes sense when you think about it. Holidays are, after all, full of emotion, traditions and family, which can make for love and kisses — or depression and arguments.

Should you invite your new boyfriend to spend the holidays with your family? What if you and you girlfriend have different holiday traditions or religions?

Should you wait until after the holidays to break up with someone?
