If you’ve ever hosted a Thanksgiving get together, then you know it can be stressful. There’s the kitchen prep and planning, of course, but also the cleaning (of your home and your kitchen), entertainment, and attempted sidestepping of controversial issues that’ll put the dinner conversation in a tailspin.
Thankfully, there’s an easy way to avoid this formulaic nightmare while still celebrating with the people you love: take a vacation.
