為什么越來越多的美國人想要拋棄傳統的節日傳統

From Instagram-worthy turkey dinners to perfectly wrapped presents, hopes for the holidays are high — and a fifth of Americans say holidays at home never meet expectations.

從值得上傳到instagram的火雞大餐到包裝精美的禮物,人們對圣誕節的期望很高——五分之一的美國人說,在家過節永遠達不到人們的期望。

But travel has benefits beyond learning about family and heritage — 55 percent of respondents have made new connections while traveling.

但是,旅行的好處不僅僅是了解家庭和傳統——55%的受訪者在旅行時建立了新的聯系。

而且這些聯系是持久的:68%的人仍然與他們在旅途中遇到的人保持聯系。
