It’s finally time to put our feet up and relax! But as for earlier, well it was quite a different story. From shopping to traveling, many people were very busy this Christmas Eve.

The day before Christmas and the stores are packed with shoppers. For some it’s a tradition to wait until the last minute. For others, they checked their lists and realized, they still have a gift they need to get. “I am just finishing last minute odds and ends,” said Karen Johnson.

At the airport there was a similar scene with big crowds. Some people were heading out of town, like Jessica Frisbie and her family. “My sister in law just had a baby a few days ago, so we are going to see her.”

Others were just arriving. Jake Wetzel just flew in with his family from San Diego. “It’s always great to come back to Nebraska. It’s good to be with family.” His son Zack was thrilled that Santa would be visiting soon. “I feel happy!”

Many especially happy that soon they will be at their final destination and able to enjoy some quality time with loved ones.
