Thanksgiving is practically synonymous with travel, and travelling is exhausting (evidence above). It seems like most Americans travel some distance to celebrate the holiday. (If not, they're usually stuck with the enormous task of preparing the feast!) Why do we do it? To be with family, of course. I spent 7.5 hours on the road on Tuesday, and today I'll be in car for another 4. It's worth it though, don't you think?
