We usually travel around Christmas and our favorite memory trip was when we went to DC by train on Christmas Eve.
I made Santa hats for us to wear and it was so neat to walk from car to car and see the kids faces lite up in coach as we went through. We gave out candy canes if the kids promised to settle down and give their parents a break.( Coach is a nightmare to travel overnite in).
Later back in our room it was remarkable to lay in bed and watch out the windows as we passed through small towns all lite up . Some of the best decorations I have ever seen and to top it off it started snowing.
