Holidays might look different for many of us this year, and that means we may have to view the usual preparations a bit differently, too. And no matter where (or how) our festivities will take place, we all aim to tone down the tension and jump up the joyful. Enter Journey’s new holiday Zoom series, Happier Holidays!

Every Tuesday at 2 p.m. in November, we’ll come to you live via Zoom with our expert(s) of the week, offering advice on subjects ranging from best practices in holiday budgeting to virtual holiday crafting with the kids. Read on to learn more about each week’s event and click the links to register. Sign up for one or all four — but hurry, as space is extremely limited. We don’t want you to miss out!
