Good morning all. Well the Holiday's are once again upon us and it's time for those of us who are junior to start thinking about flying over Christmas. This perhaps is the hardest time of the year for crew members. Being away from the family, alone in a hotel room, thinking about what we could be doing if we were with our families. For me it's not so bad as I don't have children who are expecting me there when they discover what "Santa" brought them the night before. But there's still a silver lining in flying over Christmas. Those passengers who fly on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day seem to really appreciate you, the flight attendant for being there and showing up for work. I know that this is the time of year where call-off's are high, but before you do that please remember that we chose this career and all that comes with it. Some people are depending on us to get their loved ones "home for the Holiday's". I wish all flight attendants and crew members a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season. And as always I would like to thank the Men and Women in our Armed Services working to keep our Country safe. Remember, they wont be home for the Holiday's either. Merry Christmas to them and a Happy Holiday Season as well. Return home safe.
