Cancelled flights, missed connections, long layovers—what's the worst holiday travel story you've heard? Or experienced?
My case did not actually involve any transportation, but when I spent my first Christmas eve in Cedar City, Utah, about ten+ years ago, I was practically left alone in my university dormitory and so, out of boredom I went out to get some groceries at night.  It was snowing, and since I didn't have a car at that time, I took an about 20-minutes-walk to local Albertson's only to find the store was closed-- really, I didn't know the Christmas was such an important holiday in the US and thus even "OPEN 24-hours" supermarket does close without warning since that day!
It was the coldest and silentest Christmas eve I've experienced so far.
