Most of us probably traveled “home” at some point during the holidays. Why? Because there is no place like home. 

But if your family is like many today, you can have one son with three family units to visit, another son with four, a 90-year-old mother who lives half the year with one of your siblings and the other half with another, and more. Divorce and distance are common guests at the holiday table.
