Short breaks are becoming more popular than ever before, and as Christmas approaches the cheap hotels begin to fill up. The Christmas period is an extremely hectic time for everyone, and trying to sneak time away before the chaos begins is favoured by many. You will need to consider how much time you can take from work, and where you would like to go for your weekend away from home.
Traditionally Christmas is spent with family, however, today more people are choosing to avoid the family gathering, and take small breaks away from home.

Taking time off work around the Christmas period may be difficult; however, if you speak to your boss well in advance, you may be able to negotiate.
