What in the world? It’s Christmas already! Time really does start to fly as we get older. We hope you’re able to celebrate the holidays with your loved ones because you’ve really earned it. Truckers are responsible for making the holiday season possible as they deliver loads across the nation during the busiest time of year for trucking.
Whether you were the driver delivering Christmas trees so families could decorate their homes or the driver with a load full of Christmas flavored peeps, thank you for all of your hard work! If you can’t make it home for Christmas, don’t feel blue. Check out how to have a happy holiday.
Bring a Buddy
You don’t have to spend the day by yourself. Your spouse and kids should have some time off, so take them on a special road trip during their holiday break. They will love seeing Christmas decorations all across the country. You can also take your pup along if the people in your life are busy. Just make sure your carrier allows pets.
Christmas is one of the few days of the year where people can shamelessly eat what they want. Throw out your calorie plan and order the glorious feast that you want. It doesn’t matter if you sit down to eat or it’s your favorite fast food option, enjoy it. You can also bring your favorite holiday treats along in your rig.
You don’t have to spend Christmas quietly talking to yourself. Reach out to your friends and family by calling them. You can also use a program like Skype to video call them or to watch your kids open what Santa brought them. Also, other truckers are out and about so you can talk to them. No one loves talking like truckers do.
Watch Something Meaningful
We know you have Netflix or Hulu set up in your rig, so use it to watch one of your favorite holiday movies. Maybe your family will be watching the same thing at home. Or you can take the time to distract yourself with a new, cool show.
Don’t spend the day feeling down. Remember that your hard work will pay off. You’ve probably rescheduled your holiday celebration to happen when you get home, so think about how happy your family will be once you arrive!
