We live 20 minutes from my parents and 40 minutes from DH's parents, so we go to both places on Christmas day. Growing up, we lived next door to my maternal grandparents and 20 minutes from paternal grandparents. We wouldn't know what to do if we didn't live near family!
I would prefer to stay at home, but my mom says she's always thought it would be neat to travel to see family at Christmas. She's 60 years old and has lived on the same hill her entire life. She just moved next door when she married at 19 years old.
