Asked by baileysmom12 (957points) December 17th, 2009

Every one is meeting at my house this year. My sister that lives in South Carolina will be going to Chicago to see her in-laws then they are coming here. How far will you have to travel this year?

I’ll be travelling from my kitchen to my living room (and back and forth). Everyone is coming here, as well.

About 25 miles if we go to the MIL & FIL’s house. About 35 miles if we go to the BIL & SIL’s house. This all depends on when the impending niece/nephew shows up!

To the kitchen to get popcorn. To the living room to watch Spaceballs.

@rangerr – Why?
Are you away from family and friends?

For me, everyone lives in the neighborhood.

We will be doing the family get together 5 miles away at my sister’s house on Christmas eve. We decided many years ago that Christmas day would be spent at our house so we didn’t have the stress of having to spend the day traveling with toddlers. Everyone is welcome to come have dinner with us as long as we don’t have to go anywhere that day.

@ChazMaz My family canceled Christmas, so it’s just gonna be a normal day. I’ll probably end up at the ranch though.

azlotto's avatar

About 8 miles.

CMaz's avatar

@rangerr – How do you feel about that?


rangerr's avatar

@ChazMaz I’m not too worried about it. I still got my little sister a present. Our family doesn’t really talk much anyway.
& yep. Our horses. 63 of ‘em.

Down the road. It will take less than an hour to get there. And then on the actual day of Christmas I will be going down the hall into the living room.

The only traveling I will be doing is time travel back to when the kids were small, Santa was real, and eating a big meal didn’t put me in a coma.

Mavericksjustdoinganotherflyby's avatar

@Merriment That’s great! Traveling without moving! Love it!

evegrimm's avatar

I honestly don’t know how many miles it is to “home” (my mom’s house), but it takes about 3 hours from where I live now. It’s mostly freeway, though. phew!

And then I will travel about 15 minutes down the road for my Aunt’s Christmas dinner. :P

¾ of a mile!

About 66 miles to my Grandmthers house (and the county I was born in).

DominicX's avatar

Am going to Hawaii tomorrow. But will be back here for Christmas.

Then we’re going to Nevada. First to visit my grandparents and then to go to my vacation home at Lake Tahoe with my family and my boyfriend.

If I pick up my wife to go to my niece’s house for Xmas Eve, then it will be about 13 miles.
If I drive there directly, it will be about 8 miles.

aprilsimnel's avatar

16 miles to my sister’s.

YARNLADY's avatar

Most of our family lives 500 miles away, but we can’t afford to visit them this year.

We have slowly been building a family enclave here, with my youngest son, his wife, their two boys, and my oldest grandson.

Merriment's avatar

@Mavericksjustdoinganotherflyby —thanks! It’s the only way to fly :)
