You Are a Holiday Caretaker!
Caretakers value maintaining family traditions passed down from year to year. Whether it’s attending midnight services on Christmas Eve or lighting candles each night during Chanukah, the Caretaker tends to honor these family customs. The Caretaker is the best prepared of all the archetypes for the holidays, shopping and buying gifts throughout the year, mindful of sales, which help them to stay within budget. You won’t find the Caretaker in a frenzy buying last minute presents or hastily assembling decorations two days before Christmas. Speaking of decorations, the Caretaker’s house is more likely to be tastefully decorated using white lights and traditional mangers or menorahs. From a gift-giving standpoint, Caretakers probably lean toward the practical side, giving useful presents that can be used throughout the year.
