Holiday Survival Guide: 10 Tips for Surviving the Holiday Commute

The Christmas season is in full swing, and so is the traffic! Here are 10 tips to help get you through the season with your sanity intact. By Tala Dayrit
While we unofficially start the Christmas season as early as September, we don't really feel its effects until after Halloween. Christmas-themed lamppost decorations, Christmas songs in malls, the splash of red and green on everything, and pre-Christmas sales are just some of the things that herald that season of giving once again. And then there's the traffic.

It's just a fact of life. Traffic is everywhere, but it gets especially congested around Christmastime. Everyone is either hurrying home or going to the mall for gift-hunting or just to unwind. Having a car is bad when one happens to use roads near malls or commercial establishments, but it is hell on the commuter who just wants to get home.

Here is FN's little contribution toward making your holiday commute as hassle-free as possible!
