Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

If you're perusing this, you might have got a moving company in El Paso set up and are moving during the holidays. And unless you are moving "back" to where you call home, this may be the toughest prospective time of the year to pack up your home and go live someplace else. There's no doubt this may not be how you imagined you would spend your winter break or Thanksgiving, but here you are--might as well make the best of it. Listed here are 4 tips to helping you through a holiday move.

Set Up A Tree. Or Two.

Your house is a mess with moving supplies anyway, so why wouldn't you put up a tree and hang stockings by the fireplace and a wreath on your front door? If you end up with a live tree, so what about dropped needles? You will be moving soon. Get the kids participating in decorating and go all out --leave no branch untouched. In the event that you haven't done any shopping yet, wrap empty containers with last year's excess wrapping paper and take numerous pictures. Come up with a playlist of everybody's favorite Christmas songs and crank it whilst you deck the halls.

For those who have small children, wrap a handful of their items and set them beneath the early tree as a surprise. Big kids and spouses will certainly appreciate this touch also.

Bonus--you're going to learn which lights work you arrive to your new residence.

Hold a Friendsgiving

If your Thanksgiving resembles an anonymous meal at a stop on the interstate, have an early get together. Friendsgiving is a current trend where you observe together with friends and neighbors, consequently how about a farewell meal prior to leaving? Ask a close pal to host for you and put together the meal together--this is a great possibility to share dishes. Do not miss any traditions--play tag football, watch a sporting event on TV (there is always on demand, if needed) go look at lights, or even go shopping at midnight--you can find quite a lot of 24-hour big box stores in order to continue the tradition, and you're less apt to get trampled.

Once more, there exists a bonus--the silver's now polished.

Make Adorning Your New House A Goal

Once you arrive at your new residence in El Paso, don't pass "Go" with the decorating containers and bins--have the moving company team set them right in the great room where you will be putting up your tree. Next, go at it--trim the tree, display the stockings, and light up the night--you will be able to unpack your closets any time. You will have already got that holiday playlist, turn it on and sing along--it provides a good transition from the old house to your new one.

Start New Traditions to Keep the Magic Alive for Kids

Moving to El Paso is challenging for the whole family, but it could take a toll on children more than adults. You have had familiarity with new places, and a lot of kids have not. It's important to retain as many traditions as possible, and also to start a couple of new ones. Below are a few ideas to get you going.

· Take advantage of new weather conditions --hike, snowboard, swim, or visit the seaside. Show your family some great benefits of their new locale with some new adventures.

· Via Google, find out the place that the best Santa is, the most impressive light displays, and other local traditions, are and make a evening of it.

· Likewise, by way of the internet, look for memorable events--shows, plays, live Nativity displays, parades, and New Year's Eve happenings. A lot of places hold family-friendly celebrations for New Year's, where the ball drops close to nine o'clock and there's no shortage of activities for your kids.

· Embrace your inner goofy--if you have always gone right past the blow-up sleighs and reindeer, no matter how hard your children beg, this may be the year to let it go and get whatever yard art your children wish. If that means light-up angels together with a snow globe and the Grinch, get out your pump and spotlights and give up on Martha Stewart this current year. This is a secret--10 years from now you may be sad when those blow-up cartoon characters wear out.

Managing a holiday move to El Paso doesn't have to be the toughest thing ever; give attention to your family, the season and your traditions--it is a guaranteed method to help you fake it until you make it.
