2) 25 Days of Holiday Travel Hacks | Travel + Leisure
From advice on handling holiday airport hassles, to the best restaurants open on Christmas, Travel + Leisure is releasing their own “25 Days of Holiday Travel Hacks.” There’ll be a new one each day until Christmas, so keep an eye out for the best advice for reducing holiday stress.
