Best Month to Leave St. Louis - 2009
The time of year that must not be named will be here sooner than you can figure out what adeste fideles means. Instead of fighting the local crowds and the unpredictable weather — and fighting with your family about how to put the lights on the tree — skip it and skip town. No matter where you wind up, you'll definitely be more in the spirit of things than if you had stayed home. Think about it: No tree to trim, no cookies to bake, no pressure to be cheery. In fact, you'll experience actual holiday happiness because you'll be on vacation. The carols you'll hear at your destination spot will seem merry, not cloying, and the eggnog hangovers won't be as painful because you'll have ample time to sleep in, and the post-holiday letdown won't be as depressing because you'll still be away from home!
