Do you believe in travelling on Christmas Day?
I have family in various locations and I often have to travel. My parents don't really feel right about me travelling on Christmas or around Christmas.
If so how far is too far?
Do you travel on christmas?
What mode of transport do you take?
I think most of us have to - or had to when our children were younger. There was always an obligation to trek off to the parents and in-laws places. My kids hated it because they would get up super early, open up their gifts and then have no time to play with them because it was off to the grandparents. Now that I'm the grandparent I have never expected that of my children. Often I'll see them the day before or the day after, but Christmas is their special day. I volunteer for a community lunch on Christmas day so I have a fabulous time!
When are kids were at home, we'd travel to 1 side of Sydney (NSW) for a late lunch, then to our side of Sydney to the in-laws for a late dinner, to the other side of Sydney. It worked out OK & the traffic wasn't a hassle. Now we have an early (my) family Xmas lunch, (No more presents, thank heavens,) as well as my Mum's birthday celebrations, then fly down to Melbourne (Vic) & spend 2 lovely days over Christmas with our youngest daughter & s/I/law & his lovely parents in Yea. We can only stay 2 days because our s/I/law does shift work.
