POLL: Will you be travelling over the holidays?

  • Dec. 18, 2019 3:00 p.m.

Stockings hung by the fireplace, the smell of turkey wafting through the air, chasing the cat from unwrapping the presents under the tree. These are just some of the magical moments from this wondrous time of year.

Christmas is a time to celebrate with those you love. For many, Christmas brings friends and family from far and wide, coming together to share in the warmth of the holiday season.

Of course, the drawback to that is that for others Christmas can be a time for travelling, braving icy roads and long waits at airports and ferry terminals.
