Home Blog True Togetherness for The Holidays


As the old song goes, the holidays (during a normal year) are widely celebrated as “the most wonderful time of the year”. In the midst of a global pandemic, we can only hope and pray as much! During this unique time, we’ve been forced to see and try things differently—the way we communicate, the way we work, the way we learn, the way we share space with others. In some ways, we’ve had to slow down, reevaluate, relearn, and go back to the basics. While it looks like COVID-19 might be around for a little while, our holidays may look a little different, but maybe it won’t be the worst thing in the world to take the same approach and get back to the basics.

There is no better place to slow down than on Hatteras Island, one of America’s most iconic drive-to destinations. Settle into island time with your family during the holidays in one of our spacious vacation rental homes, and really celebrate the true togetherness that makes the holidays so special. Family founded, family owned, and family operated, you can trust your family’s holiday season will be in good hands with Midgett Realty.

Enjoy True Togetherness This Holiday Season on Hatteras Island

1. Relax

You won’t find too much “hustle and bustle” on Hatteras Island. This is the time the islanders relax and enjoy their friends and families, and we invite you to do the same. Go at your own pace in one of our vacation rentals where you are free to lounge in whatever way you choose. Take in the ocean, meditate, walk, explore and unwind!

2. Relearn

Relearn what it’s like to unplug and enjoy your surroundings–everything from your environment to the people you’re with. Decorate a tree together, get a recipe tutorial from mom, go on a scenic beach walk with your sister, talk, laugh, explore and enjoy what’s around you. Relearn what it’s like to engage in true togetherness that is often interrupted by screens or time constraints.

3. Reconnect

Rather than cramming a whole year’s worth of time together into one meal, take it slow and reconnect with your family. Listen to old stories and really engage in your family history. Ask questions that you may not have the chance to ask later and leave with a stronger bond than you came with.
