Most of my family that I travel to for the holidays, really isn't traveling, we all live within a 10 - 20 minute radius from each other, lol Although we get together after Christmas at my cousin's house and it's a 1 1/2 hour drive.
We don't. We vacation as a family in the summer time when we have plenty of time. Trying to fit in a trip in the week that the kids are off for Thanksgiving, or the two weeks they are off for Christmas, would just be more stress than anything. There would also be the issue of who to visit or where to go in such short time. So holidays are just at home family time for us.
