"For some, this may be the first holiday season after a loved one has passed away. For others, perhaps it is the second, fifth or eighth and memories flood back from prior holidays. Below, we have different references and perspectives on traveling thru the holiday season. They may not all pertain, but our hope is, you will find some information helpful."
