As much as the missus and I might fantasize about traveling somewhere warm each Christmas; somewhere far, far away from family – “Four Christmases” style – we have never done so. At the end of the day (or year, as it were) we always
suffer through spend the holiday with at least some exceptionally annoying people of our relatives.
Haha … just kidding family.
But as they say, different strokes for different folks. Some of the folks on the TravelBlog forums will actually be celebrating Christmas on the road, and Asia seems to be a particularly popular destination.
We love Christmas, and much prefer to to spend it at home with friends and family. However, this year we will be in Shanghai. ~Rat on the Road
Although, spending time with ones family during this season is always a good things. I will not be doing so this year. I am going to spend it in China like I did for the past 5 Christmas’ ~travellingterry
Of course, not everyone traveler travels to Asia during the holiday. Or at least they don’t travel to Asia every year.
After spending an ‘interesting’ Christmas on Ko Lanta last year, we decided to spend it at home this year. … we realised that family is what makes it a special time of year ~AndrewFamily
What about you? Where will you be spending Christmas this year? For that matter, do you even celebrate Christmas? And, if not, have you found that there are particularly good places to visit where the holiday isn’t mainstream?
