Many people would not consider spending Christmas away from home. We tend to all have family traditions and most of them are associated with waking up in your own bed and getting straight on with cooking the lunch.
However, there are some people who tend to return to a hotel year after year and therefore there must be something which attracts them. The first thing is the fact that you will get a rest. There will be no worries about making meals at all or washing up. This will make a huge difference and might even prevent a few family disagreements.
Some people even have quite a few family members meeting up in the same hotel. This means that you can share your celebrations together and swap gifts in the hotel and then have your meal together. It is a great way to make sure that no one has to worry about who it is that cooks the meal and whose house has to be used. It could also get over the problems of finding space for everyone. Obviously there is the issue of the cost of doing this and there is no doubt that it will be more expensive than all staying at one family home.
However, it could be a much better time, more memorable, more relaxed and so it could certainly be worth considering. Another option is to just go out for the main meal of the day and then the costs will be lower but you will still not have to worry about the cooking and washing up on the big day, at least for one meal anyway. If you choose either option then you will have to be prepared to book it up well in advance because it will be something that a lot of people will want to do.
