I don’t know about you, but for me I would definitely have to say that it would. Now given that I would still enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas day just as much, it’s the time after the major parts of those holidays that would drive me nuts. I admit it, I need my Internet and the only thing that might be worse to me than no Internet, is really slow or unreliable Internet.
Every time I go home to visit my family, I always get a little sad because my mom still doesn’t have Internet so I know when I go there I am going to be somewhat disconnected, even though I still have my phone. During the holidays, there is always tons going on or nothing going on and there never seems to be an in between. I love my family and all, but sometimes you just need to check on your fantasy league or browse your favorite tech and gaming site (uh ZoKnowsGaming) and the small screen of your mobile just isn’t good enough. I hate not having Internet connectivity so bad that I am actually thinking about picking up one of those MiFi devices from Virgin with no contract, just so I can still have Internet when I am back home for the holidays, a small price to pay for the convenience I think.
How about you all, would your holidays be affected any if you didn’t have the Internet at all? To make this one even tougher, let’s say that you didn’t have Internet AND you got no cell phone reception where you were so you couldn’t even browse on your phone. Besides the fun and joy of seeing your family, would it make the holidays a total downer or do you enjoy using the holidays as an excuse to kind of fall off the grid for a little bit?
