It can be really hectic trying to fly a couple days before or after major holidays like Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Eve. But if you have a flexible schedule or find yourself not celebrating that specific holiday, traveling on the day of is a great way to avoid the travel hassle that is all too easily found just a day earlier or later. For instance, you’ll have much more luck finding a flight super early Christmas Eve morning or even late Christmas Day, than you would the night before. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, just postpone your departure until New Year’s Eve, another window for easy travel.
