My family puts the fun back in dysfunctional. For me, it's all about enjoying Uncle Harold before he falls over from scarfing too many rum balls behind Aunt Sarah's back. I love to travel, but I wouldn't miss this show for anything.

If you're part of that lucky crowd heading south, TripAdvisor travelers say jetting south on Christmas and New Year's day will save you money.

Part of me wishes that all my holiday travel was to somewhere warm, without family. And part of me agrees with the message in 13 goin on 30 - traveling over Christmas is weird and kind of inhuman. Even if it isn't Christmas, who would skip their own family's big holiday?
