After New Years EveNow that Kansas City is enjoying the start of the holiday season, it’s difficult to think about post-holiday plans—especially considering how many of us are trying to figure out how we’re going to get everything accomplished before the end of the year. Every holiday season comes with a list of parties, events, and activities that take up a good bit of our free time. And that’s probably why so many people feel a little blue after the holidays have come to an end at midnight on January 1st. When the gifts have all been unwrapped, the fruitcake is down to the last few crumbs, and the last champagne bottle is floating in the ice bucket, it’s over. All of a sudden, we’re looking at a blank calendar, we have a lot of free time on our hands, and many of us simply don’t know what to do with it all. This is what many believe is a leading cause of post-holiday blues. But, here’s a little secret: the fun and merriment doesn’t have to end on January 2nd.

Yes, there’s a long stretch of blank calendar days between New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day. And if you read online advice columns on how to beat the post-holiday blues, you’ll notice that many people suggest that you occupy your new-found free time by learning a foreign language, taking up a crafty hobby, or jump-starting a new career. Although this is sound advice for anyone wishing to live a full and active life, some say it’s a bit lofty in nature. Perhaps, what you need is a new “personal holiday” smack-dab in the middle of January. So, why not start a new tradition? One in which you reclaim a little bit of the holiday magic by treating yourself and your spouse or family to a night on the town in Kansas City?

Obviously, Kansas City is a great town for events, activities, and entertainment. There are a variety of upcoming concerts and events at the Sprint Center. You can take the family to Sesame Street Live, George Strait, or the Harlem Globetrotters at the Sprint Center in January. There are always wonderful presentations and exhibits at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. And in January you can experience a number of wonderfully-creative performances at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, such as saxophonist Kenny G, Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs & Ham, Sleeping Beauty performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet, and the smash-hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT direct from Broadway.

To create a post-holiday, blues-busting event, simply select a performance or two and build a day of personal or family fun that includes a couple of scrumptious meals, a bit of shopping, a sweet treat (or two!) and, perhaps, an overnight stay at one of the hotels on the Country Club Plaza. All you need to keep your post-holiday party rolling is a chauffeur-driven limousine to whisk you from one place to the next in lavish style. With a limousine at your beck and call, you’ll be able to live in the moment, without ever having to worry about traffic or parking or directions from one place to the next.
