Rebroadcast • Splitting the Holidays

Welcome to Summer! It’s that time of year we love to celebrate by taking just a few weeks off to plan, rebuild, and get refreshed for a new season in the fall. So we have a few episodes from the archives to share with you this year that will be dropping in your feed over the coming weeks. First up, what was originally an episode about splitting the fall holidays comes today just in time for summer!

Summer, that time we celebrate the most cherished of all divorce traditions, that special time when you sit down and ask: how do you split the holidays?

Let’s get this out of the way early: if you have kids involved, splitting holidays is not easy. We’re not just talking about the winter holidays, mind you. What about winter break… Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, summer break, Thanksgiving, three-day weekends, teacher planning days, Jewish Holidays, Non-Hallmark holidays, and believe it or not, the list goes on from there!

Luckily, after you wrap your head around the sheer number of days to calculate, you can rest easy in the comfort of the one person in your corner who can help you with all that holiday math: your lawyer. That’s right, your lawyer has likely been through this many, many times and has seen every possible permutation of the holiday split and with a little patience, can get you scheduling like a pro.

Seth Nelson is a Tampa based family lawyer known for devising creative solutions to difficult problems. In How to Split a Toaster, Nelson and co-host Pete Wright take on the challenge of divorce with a central objective — saving your most important relationships with your family, your former spouse, and yourself.
