The holidays can be a very stressful time for many people.

Technology advancements have made the holidays a bit easier, though. Cortana is one of those advancements that can help you during and after the holidays. These are just a few ways you can use Cortana this holiday season to make it easier on you.
During the holiday season, you are likely running around like a crazy person. It can be difficult to keep up with everything and remember everything that you have to do. Luckily, with Cortana, you do not have to keep up with everything anymore. All you have to do is tell Cortana to remind you. If you need to order the ham for your holiday dinner by a specific date, tell Cortana to remind you to make the call before the deadline. If you need to pick up wrapping paper on your way home, ask her to remind you once you get in your vehicle after work. She will remember all of these moving parts for you as long as you ask her to do it.
Cortana is really great at keeping and maintaining lists.

No matter what you have to keep track of, Cortana can help you stay on track.
During the holidays, a lot of people tend to either go visit family on other parts of the country or world or they may even go on vacation and take advantage of the time off of work. Once you have booked your flight, you can provide the information to Cortana. Cortana will then keep track of the flight information, provide you reminders when it is getting close to the flight time, and even tell you if the flight is delayed. Cortana will do this automatically once she has all of the information about the flights.
