All my family is located, for the most part, in the Northeast, and it's hard for me to reconcile leaving South Florida to fight the holiday traffic and deal with everything that is air travel these days in order to eat a big, uncomfortable meal and freeze my a** off.
But kudos to those of you who have the patience and the motivation to take it on. For you, I have the following video of what is probably my favorite Publix commercial ever. Between the music, which is Pat Metheny's Last Train Home, and the overwhelming joyous feel to the thing, which is really what the holidays are all about for most everyone, it is one heckuva clip. And, really, you have to love the Florida touch at the end.
Enjoy it and happy and safe travels to those of you who are hitting the roads, rails and skyways today. If you feel like it, feel free to use the comments to share your thoughts or plans for the holiday.
