The holiday periods are many things... But they can also be a time to use your timeshares. Holiday periods are typically busier periods at timeshares, so planning is much more critical. But if you have mastered the use of timeshares then you probably have mastered the planning aspects.

Not to say that this is easy. Getting everyone's calendars lined up is hard... But if you can make it a tradition, then it will go smoother each year as everyone gets used to the one (or twice, etc...) a year. In my case, since I have downsized to a place that is too small for everyone, the timeshares have been really useful for me. When my kids were younger, we did timeshare trips, but now that they are adults, I've only recently started doing them again.

I've overcome most of the issues to make them work for the last two years and have planned for several more trips. I am also doing separate trips with each of my kids so I can match their busy schedule... But that is a separate video.
