The holidays have arrived, with all the excitement and anticipation they bring! For many people, the holidays mean more than good food and finding the perfect gift. They mean spending time with family and friends you might wish you saw more of all year long. Perhaps they live far away, and can only travel for the holidays, or perhaps busy schedules during the year prevent frequent visits. Holidays gatherings are the perfect way to catch back up again with the ones we care about most.
If you are hosting a holiday gathering for family and friends, even just for an evening meal and chat, you will want to prepare your home for those whom you will host. Whether you have a couple old friends coming by themselves, or family members with small children or pets staying with you, or even have family elders with mobility issues, you may need to take special steps to make them comfortable in the time they are with you.
