Not going home for the holidays may seem like a bad thing, but there are actually quite a few pros. Over my winter break, I am going to Israel and at first I was sad that I wouldn’t spend time with my family, but it got me thinking about all of the good things about not being home for the holidays. If you feel the same way, here are some compelling reasons to not go home for the holidays.
1. You Can Travel
If you're not going home for the holidays, that is an entire chunk of your year you can dedicate to going someplace new. Whether it is visiting a boyfriend’s family in his hometown, or going to an entirely new continent, it's something different. Your holiday break is a chance to have an entirely new experience.
