“Tis the season to be jolly.”

Whether you are in the throws of Hanukkah celebrations or counting down to Christmas and Kwanzaa , a season devoted to family, friends and giving is upon us.


Staying Relaxed During the Hustle and Bustle

Yes, remaining relaxed is more than possible. The pressures and expectations so much a part of holidays can definitely be lessened by taking full advantage of your hot tub. So, first, the most important way you can make use of your spa is to take time for yourself daily to relax. Have a quiet soak before your day begins, or after a long day of shopping or working.










Second: Use your spa for more than a private routine. Make time to enjoy it with the one you love. If you are fortunate to own a Bullfrog Spa, both of you can choose the ideal JetPak for rejuvenation. Sharing quality time together in your spa’s soothing bubbles, you both become relaxed, conversation becomes easy, and, well, you don’t want to leave. How’s that for a Happy Hanukkah or Merry Christmas.

third way to use your hot tub is to let it play a role in your holiday entertaining. In checking our lists twice, we noticed that Long Island Hot Tub published a blog some time ago with tips for hosting special get togethers. Here are the tips again:

1. Make sure your water is clean and clear. Give your water a quick shock the night before and then just before the party starts. Then add some spa scents.

2. Have plenty of water and other beverages for everyone to drink. Seems strange, but it is easy to become dehydrated in the hot tub. Keep a wide variety so everyone keeps drinking liquids.

3. Don’t ever use glass around the hot tub. Use plastic water and soda bottles, safe plastic tumblers, or even the classic red Dixie cups work great! For hot chocolate and other hot drinks, choose cups that will withstand the heat and not burn the hands.

4. Make sure your spa has the LED hot tub lights. These multi-color lights set the mood and are entertaining. If you don’t have LED lights on your tub, get an inexpensive floating LED light show for about $25. It will be worth it!

5. The best thing about your Bullfrog hot tub is the JetPaks. You know this, but at your party its time to show off the JetPaks and let everyone pick their favorite.

6. Clean the area around the hot tub so people don’t track dirt and/or snowy ice into the spa. Your guests will probably not be as particular as you are, and if the area isn’t clean, they will bring the dirt on their feet into the hot tub.

7.  In the colder months, have fluffy robes for your friends (or ask them to bring them) as they may want something to keep them warm going to and from the hot tub.

To all: A happy, happy — and relaxed — holiday season.
