In the days leading up to Christmas, thousands of people around the world are taking part in animal-themed Christmas celebrations.
While it’s easy to make the holiday season a day of happiness and joy, there are many ways to make your holiday a little less joyous.
Here are five tips that can make your festive celebrations a little more bearable.
#1: Keep your furry friends at home.
Many people who attend animal-centric holidays are also dog-lovers, so the furry community has developed an incredibly welcoming and loving environment for everyone to gather.
But, just as people who are animal lovers are often more accepting of other animals, many people who aren’t have a similar tolerance for others.
To help your furry companions get through this season, it’s important to remember that you are not alone.
To make this the best holiday you can have, it may be best to take your furry companion on a walk, make some of the most memorable vegan food together, or even join in on the fun at the petting zoo.
If you’re feeling particularly festive, you can also take your dog on a stroll on your favorite neighborhood street.
#2: Don’t expect the same level of animal care and attention from strangers.
In addition to all the great holiday treats, animal care is a critical part of the holiday celebration.
And, it might seem like your furry friend’s experience will be the same no matter where you are.
That’s because some of your favorite holidays are made possible by animal charities.
But there are a few steps you can take to help make your furry partner feel at home at the holiday table.
#3: Make a list of ways to get your furry furry friends involved.
There are a ton of ways you can make this a little bit more bearish for your furry family.
Here’s a list: Make sure you’re planning your holiday party or gathering in advance, so your furry is fully aware of where he or she will be.
Include petting zoos, animal-friendly grocery stores, pet-friendly restaurants, and other animal-centered businesses in your plans.
