“Aurora Borealis, the colored lights seen in the skies around the North Pole, the Northern Lights, from Bear Lake, Alaska, a beautiful Christmas scene of the winter star filled skies.”

Holidays and travel go hand in hand.  The norm used to be folks visiting grandma’s house, but times have changed with many foregoing the standard Christmas family affair.  This is not to say that visiting family is passe . . .  however, a lot of you are thinking out of the Christmas gift box . . . and opt for a skiing trip, or maybe a sandy beach in some warm clime and even go as far as the real North Pole.

So where are the most popular holiday venue’s?  Here are a few to consider:

Want glitz?  A trip to Las Vegas will provide more bright lights and Christmas decorations than you can ever imagine.

Work on your tan and check out the Christmas electric light parade in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The 60′ Christmas tree at Disneyworld  is just one of the many reasons to visit this family paradise.

Want to really get caught up in the spirit of Christmas?  Times Square and its many nearby attractions is just the ticket . . .  FAO Schwarz, Toys R Us, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City will delight the whole family.

How about an old-world feel during the holidays – visit the Boston Common, especially if the area has been blanketed with snow.

Santa Claus fans don’t have to trek all the way to the North Pole [in Alaska], closer by is Santa’s Village in New York’s Adirondack Mountains which will delight both the young and old.

Everywhere you go, there’s a little Christmas magic; even in your own back yard.  So, take some time to drive through your own neighborhood (especially at night) and take in the lights and sites . . .

Happy holidays
