  5. Egg boiling tips – Now if you want your egg softly boil, you need to boil it only for 5 minutes. But if you want it hard boiled, you need to boil it for 5-10 minutes. I usually go to 7 minutes.
  6. After boiling the eggs, remove the excess water from the pot and run cool water on top of the just boiled to cool down the eggs before you start to decorate or peel them.

How to Combine the Holidays to Make New Traditions

Christmas time is the most popular time to exchange holiday cards. They provide a way for people to share the joy and excitement of the season with one another. In many cases, people also use this occasion to provide a yearly update on their families and lives.

Holiday Cards

Including an update on the family has become almost a tradition in many households across the nation when sending cards for the holidays. With people finding themselves busier and busier with school, work, and family activities, it has become more difficult to keep loved ones abreast of the latest happenings in the family. The annual holiday newsletter makes it easy to share with others about the important events in the family’s lives.

Photo holiday cards give people the opportunity to really personalize the entire experience for everyone on their card list. In many cases, these annual holiday photos might be the only ones that are seen by far flung relatives and friends. This makes this type of cards for the holidays particularly touching and special since they are only seen once a year.

There continues to be a diversity that is seen in the world today, especially when it comes to the holidays. Many people celebrate Kwanzaa and Hanukkah, as well as Christmas. By taking the important elements that are meaningful to them and combining them with their favorite traditions, it is easy for people to create new traditions that reflect the diversity that is so often found within families today.

For example, it is not unusual to see bar mitzvah invitations that also have an element of Christmas on them. This allows the boy who is celebrating his mar mitzvah to also embrace Christmas in a way that is fun and tasteful. When it comes to celebrating, most people feel like you can’t have too many holidays.

If the boy who is celebrating his bar mitzvah is of a more serious nature, he can still have his bar mitzvah invitations reflect his serious side as well as other holidays. By using religious symbols such as stars, on the invitations, they can be personal and still reflect those things he considers important. When he intersperses other religious symbols, however, he also allows his playful nature to emerge as well.

Bow Tie and Suit

For that special person who is having their first bar mitzvah around the Christmas holidays, there are a number of different ways to incorporate both holidays into the invitations that he sends to the family and friends that he wants to share his special day with. From using a combination of different symbols that represent the different holidays to using Christmas colors with a traditional Jewish verse, the possibilities are endless. They are bound only by his imagination and style.

Because his bar mitzvah is a special occasion that only comes once in a lifetime, it is important to allow him a certain amount of freedom and flexibility when choosing his invitations. These invitations will become a treasured keepsake of this special time in his life.

How to Plan a Great Florida Vacation

Vacations are a great way to unwind and forget about the stresses of everyday life for just a little while. Whether you’re planning a vacation for your whole family, or you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two, Florida provides tons of options for site seeing and fun experiences. Here are a few ways to plan a great Orlando vacation.

First, you want to decide the time of year that you want to visit this sunny state. Obviously, you may not want to plan your trip in the middle of hurricane season. However, since hurricane season spans from June to November, this may be the only time you can get to sneak off with the family. Each summer, thousands upon thousands of people flock to the coastal state; so don’t let a little thing like hurricane season stop you from visiting.

Disney Daily Fireworks Finale

Once you know when you can get to Florida for vacation, you want to figure out where you will stay. There is an immense amount of opportunity when it comes to finding the right lodging. One option you have is to look for a Disney hotel in Orlando. This could be a great option for those traveling with kids, since the little ones pretty much love anything having to do with Disney. With a little searching, you can find just the right Disney hotel in Orlando; there are plenty to choose from. Don’t jump on the very first Disney hotel in Orlando, though. Look for specials or package deals. If you’re planning to visit the famed theme park, you may be able to get a hold of special hotel pricing.

For a whole different feel, you may also check into the Terra Verde resort Orlando. This is not a hotel; it is a community of vacation homes. At Terra Verde resort Orlando, families can decide to stay in Florida villas composed of 4 to 6 bedrooms. Many of the homes in Terra Verde resort Orlando also feature private pools. Additionally, there is a community clubhouse as well as extensive community amenities for families to enjoy. When planning to visit the Disney theme park, this location is only a hop, skip and a jump away. Ok, just a ten minute drive.

Terra Verde resort Kissimmee Florida

Clearly, there are plenty of options. If you look into several, you may be surprised at just how many affordable options are available to you when it comes to lodging. Many people make the assumption that a private vacation rental would be far more costly than a hotel. However, when you take into account that a private home comes with full kitchen, you can see there are ways to save money by stocking the fridge with snacks and basic foods for easy meals.

Once you’re in Florida, your trip is made complete by a good plan of action and safety precautions. Purchase sunscreen to keep on hand for long days spent under the Florida sun. There’s nothing like a sunburn to put a damper on a fun vacation. Determine which sites are most important for you to see while in town and keep to those. At the end of every day, find time to relax by the pool at your hotel or villa rental. This way, you’re more apt to enjoy the busy days you’ll experience.
