Thanksgiving is a time when families all across the country get together, give thanks and eat way too much delicious food. Unfortunately, hundreds of miles separate some family members, making it difficult for them to see each other. In these cases, it's pretty tempting to save on travel costs and hold off on visiting your family until the next holiday.
