If I can, I try to visit the family for Thanksgiving. I don't celebrate Christmas any more, so no worries there (I'll probably be working again this year anyways). My immediate family has a Yule feast though, so I'll go to my mother's for that and she only lives a little over an hour away.
The older I get the more freedom I have for the holidays since I feel free to make my own holiday decisions. I've never liked the holidays much, so I always try to stay home.
