Thanksgiving is a day away, which means lots of food, family and traveling. While Thanksgiving eve is one of the busiest travel days of the year, its not a holiday. Its the day before the holiday.

Yesterday we wrote about what to do when you hate your family and have to spend Thanksgiving weekend with them.

But for some people spending this holiday, after traveling on a crowded plane or train or car, with their family can be quite stressful. Maybe you don’t get along with them or you are just on edge because of work and don’t want to deal with seeing cousins and their five children right now. As we saw on Saturday Night Live this week, going home is never perfect so we came up with some strategies for helping you get through it. More

Perhaps what is keeping some people home is that they believe certain myths about this shopping day. Here is some clarification on those Black Friday legends. More
