There is one bad thing about the holidays and that is not being able to be with family that is far away. For the past seven years we have lived away from home and have had maybe a parent visit us, but many times we have had our day alone. Now since they are five of us I guess I shouldn’t say we are entirely alone! I do worry about relatives, like my mom, who will find someone to spend the day with, but it won’t be her kids and grandkids.
There are many like her though! According to a recent consumer survey conducted by SC Johnson, nearly half (46 percent) of Americans who have spent a major fall or winter holiday away from their family do so due to financial limitations. Two in five Americans report they will not be home with their loved ones this Thanksgiving.
“For five generations, family has been at the heart of everything we do. This is the time of year when everyone should be surrounded by the ones they love. We’re proud to be helping families gather together during this special time.” – Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson.
