Welcome to the Weekly Roundup: the quick-and-dirty way for us to share the best of the TCK resources that come across our desks. 

We know that the holiday season can be a time of homesickness for many global individuals, this year more than ever! These are a few ways to feel close to the places you've called home or discover new traditions inspired by that travel bucket list. Kick back with a glass of your favorite festive beverage and enjoy!

Best of all, don't miss our Holiday Countdown Calendar just for TCKs, more details below.

Are you and your TCKs’ travel plans thwarted this year? If you’re far away from family and feeling more stuck than ever, take the opportunity to travel in your minds and learn about holiday celebrations all around the world, like these highlighted by National Geographic Kids

The 2 Fat Expats Facebook Group is a  global community of 24,000 that’s “all about support, encouragement and giggles with a bit of expat reality thrown in.” Join for an opportunity to chat with and hear from others who understand the homesick-for-the-holiday feels. 

Even if you're not gathering for American Thanksgiving this week, browse these mouth watering treats for something that reminds you of a home you've had or maybe try a new recipe to add to family traditions this year. Why not, it's 2020.
What are you watching, reading, or listening to that is making you feel more at home or more at peace where ever you are this season? Reply to this email to let us know...we all need a dose of that!

No matter where you are in the world the end of November brings twinkle lights...and usually family time. The holidays may look very different for you this year. With that in mind and with the help and hard work of the Alliance, we bring to you a different kind of advent calendar, the TCK Holiday Countdown!

TCK expert Lauren Wells says, "Regular debriefing is one of the most effective elements of preventive TCK care.” This is such a fun way to debrief the year with your TCKs or pass along to any families in your care. The Holiday Countdown includes 24 days of videos to watch and discuss, weekend activities and a color-along countdown page for the littlest hands.


Happy December and Happy Debriefing!
