Holiday Road

Christmas is coming and let's just say, I'm a bit panicked! Due to my busy work life, as well as events that have caused me to be out of town the past few weekends, my Christmas shopping has been very nill thus far. However, I did get a chance to do a bit of Xmas shopping this afternoon :) 

Of course, every slow car, every bit of traffic, and for some strange and crazy reason, a freaking parade, seemed to cause my somewhat happy demeanor to turn to aggravation and a boiling point that was topping the scale at around a 10!

Once at home, I couldn't help but smile when I saw my "already read once" Conde Nast Traveler sitting on the kitchen table. When it and my Travel & Leisure arrive, the world is once again, grand! I immediately started thinking of all the places I would love to spend the holidays in and of course, the most notable popped into my head -- Hawaii. 

To wake up on Christmas morning and open the door to see waves, sand and maybe a Santa sunbathing on the that would be a relaxing Christmas.  I've always thought spending Christmas in Hawaii would be one holiday I would never forget; however, until Hell decides to freeze over, my mom will expect a tree, presents and Christmas dinner at her house every year (which, I guess is okay since she cooks some amazingly good food at Christmas!)

So, since I'll be spending Christmas at home, I'll just pull out my faithful and friendly travel magazines and let their photos and words keep me company. Besides, if I couldn't handle traffic and a parade, I'm sure I'd get thrown into an airport holding cell if I were to go somewhere at Christmas.

Where has been the most unique and memorable place you've spent Christmas?

I have never traveled over Christmas before, ever! The farthest I've been from my home is about an hour or so. I experienced Easter and St. Patrick's day in Spain though!
