The holiday travel season is off to a much smoother start than last year! Since Thursday, which was expected to be the busiest day of air travel leading up to Christmas, only three flights scheduled to leave from the Boise Airport have been delayed. 

That’s great news for folks traveling to visit friends and family across the country. But what if you’re spending Christmas in Boise but it’s not the quintessential big family celebration you see in holiday commercials and movies? It may just be you and a group of misfit friends who don’t have any family in Idaho. Or maybe you’re a childless couple who’s just happy to be able to spend time together after a busy year at work. Or maybe it’s just your small, immediate family celebrating the holiday together.
