You don't always get to choose when you move. Sometimes a change in job, or a family situation, or something else means you have to move at a time that might not be ideal. If that time happens to be during the holiday season, it can be even more difficult. But, there are a few things you can do to make moving during the holidays easier on yourself and your family.
