While some may be celebrating the Christmas holiday at home, others take the road less traveled. We talked to several people today who were out and about and enjoying their day. Some say going out is an opportunity to create new memories. Others were out because they are of a different faith and don’t celebrate the holiday. Regardless of where you find yourself this time of year and for whatever reason, most say it’s a festive time to connect with family and friends. News Channel 3 hopes you did just that.
