New Year's Day

Travel letters: Try a new holiday tradition: staying home

Stay home for the holidays

Regarding "It Might Be Too Late to Land Holiday Deal" by Catharine Hamm, Oct. 12: What amazes me about articles like this is, why does everyone have to go home every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas and maybe New Year's Eve? Why can't everyone tell Grandma they'll be staying home this year? Save yourself the hassle of spending two, three or more days in the airport, missed flights, snowed-in or canceled flights, all for some turkey? Skype Grandma and tell her you won't be coming home this year!
