5 Reasons to Make Your Homepage for the Holidays

By Brett Snider, Esq. on November 20, 2013 2:45 PM

Season's greetings, merry FindLaw visitors! No matter how you choose to celebrate this festive time of year, should be your legal home for the holidays.

Whether you're traveling to visit family or hanging tinsel for that upcoming office holiday party, check out these five legal reasons FindLaw can keep your seasonal outlook cheery:

1. Fly Without Ho-Ho-Hassle.

Many Americans will be heading to the airport during the holiday season, so it may be time to brush up on your rights and responsibilities when flying.

Our own writers at FindLaw will be traveling to places like Texas (to enjoy deep-fried turkey) and Ohio (to visit family and friends). And like you, we will all be thankful that the FAA has finally given the green light to the use of smartphone and tablets from take-off to landing -- though some airlines have yet to change their policies.

So feel free to check out while on the plane (if you can)!

2. Avoid Immolation and Weight Gain.

Nothing could be more comforting than the savory and spicy notes of holiday food, but there's some room to be cautious. Even lawyers can succumb to the dangerous allure of stress eating and spiked egg nog, but our Legal Professional writers have some great ways to savor the holidays without bringing home unwanted pounds.

And while FindLaw heartily endorses the fried turkey as a Thanksgiving pillar, don't let your dinner and home go up in flames while frying your bird.

3. Driving Sans Humbuggery.

For those not into air travel, many families (and FindLaw employees) will be hitting the open road this holiday season.

Keep your holiday driving cheer with FindLaw's helpful legal how-tos on fighting out-of-state tickets and fighting parking tickets. Think red is a festive color? Keep it that way by not letting red light camera tickets bog down your trip.

4. Keep Holidays in the Family.

The holidays can bring families together, but it also can pit them in legal battles for custody and visitation. Avoid the drama and work out a holiday visitation schedule with your ex-spouse ahead of time.

And don't forget grandpa and grandma!

5. Refrain From 'Naughty' Holiday Office Parties.

FindLaw's Silicon Valley office will be participating in a Holiday Potluck in just a few weeks, but how will your office choose to celebrate the season? Hopefully it'll be with optional attendance, non-alcoholic drinks, and plenty of access to rides home. Nothing sours a sweet holiday party at work like a sexual harassment lawsuit.

From all of us at FindLaw, we wish you a safe, happy, and law-abiding holiday season!
