The weeks leading up to the holidays (that is post-Halloween, and pre-Thanksgiving/Hannukah/Christmas) are filled with a special kind of electricity that fills the air. The days get shorter, the boots get taller, and the complaining about how soon we see holiday decorations and commercials starts earlier.
If you’re an out-of-towner, going home for the holidays is filled with the excitement of seeing family and friends, sharing meals together and making the most out of the short time you get to see them. But the one unfortunate realization about holiday travel that we tend to forget about usually hits just as you get en route and realize, “Oh fuck, everyone else is going somewhere too.” So, in an effort to help you (a) plan for traffic jams, (b) remember to check-in early, and (c) keep your cool at the security line, here are a couple of relatable AF tweets that will set your expectations for traveling, sooner rather than right before you leave.
