Home for the Holidays #HickoryTradition

Home for the Holidays. It can mean so much to the mobile, military family.  Sometimes it means having your spouse beside you as you celebrate a quiet Christmas, just the two of you.  It can mean jumping in the car and travelling thousands of miles to be home with Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters.  Then there are the holidays when your kids surround you as the anticipation mounts for such a fun day all the while talking with their mom or dad on Skype while they serve over seas and in foreign lands.

  2. As an Air Force Brat and Army Wife 'Home for the Holidays' means so many things. Many times it just means "if only in my dreams" but it is always surrounded by loved ones and often spent thinking about those that we all miss.

  4. I'm a mom rather than a wife, and our family is looking forward to our sailor coming home on leave. He has been forward deployed in Japan for two years and the holidays are the only time we are all together.

  5. Home for the holidays means being with the one you love know matter where you are... I'm so thankful my husband will be home this Christmas as he was in Afghanistan last year!

  6. Having everyone home for the holidays is the most important part of Christmas. Everything takes a back burner when you are missing a loved one.

  8. I know for our family, home for the holidays means where ever the Navy takes us is our home and that's where we make our holiday memories at!! This is our first Christmas apart and we have two young boys... were trying to keep the traditions going even though dad is away! This is amazing Hickory Farms is doing this!!! I will definitely be a forever customer!

  9. My husband and I have been married for almost 4 years and almost every year he is gone leading up to a holiday. He typically makes it home in time for the actual day but this year is our first year where he is missing both Thanksgiving and Christmas because of a deployment. He will be coming home soon, so that is the joy that keeps my holiday spirits up! The phrase all I want for Christmas is YOU has never been more true in my life!

  10. Christmas to me means being with my husband and my girls (2 puppies) being the happiest girl, and being thankful for him being able to share Xmas stateside with us. Also our family is thankful for all of the men and women who serve along with him. Thanks for your service everyone and God bless ya'll

  11. Home for the Holidays means being in my home, surrounded by my pups, baby, and (hopefully) husband, with our own little family traditions. We always have anyone who doesn't have somewhere to go over for Christmas dinner, and spend the day with our Air Force family!

  15. For me, it means going home to where my family is.

  16. It means being together with the ones you love. With military families, its not necessarily about being "home" when you are constantly moving, but rather being together and spending time with each other

  18. Thank you for this amazing opportunity. As a Navy Veteran & an Army Wife I know all about the "Home for the Holidays" saying. Home is where the heart is and my heart is always home for the holidays. This is my favorite time of the year.

  19. "Home for the Holidays" to me means not only our family being together at some point, but more importantly being at peace in our own hearts, bound together by the love and appreciation we have for our families and friends, no matter where they may be.

  20. If home is where the Air Force sends us, "Home for the Holidays" just means that the 5 of us are together. Since my almost 19 year old graduated high school in May and next Christmas my husband is scheduled to be in Qatar, this Christmas we will all indeed be home for the holidays... perhaps for the last time for a while.

  22. Home for the Holidays means being with family, friends and pets. Safe and warm around the Christmas tree. I would love to win this for a soldier I know who does so much for all of us and works so very hard.
